Muslim Anti-Racism Collaborative
Grant Type: General Support
Duration: January 1, 2019 – December 31, 2019
MuslimARC creates spaces to learn and develop racial equity, connects multifaith and multiracial networks using digital media, dialogue and storytelling, and cultivates solutions for racial justice through research, curriculum development, and strategic planning.
As a faith-based organization, MuslimARC works with Muslim communities to build capacity for racial equity, as well as with interfaith and multiracial coalitions to address the intersections of systemic racism and Islamophobia. The organization uses both online education platforms and on-the-ground workshops to encourage an appreciation of diversity and meaningful dialogue to combat racism, Islamophobia, and xenophobia. This includes creating spaces for learning, racial equity trainings, connecting and activating a vibrant network through digital media, and cultivating leadership and solutions for racial justice. In 2019, MuslimARC plans to deepen its core programming—create, connect and cultivate—while it strengthens its core operations in alignment with a five-year strategic plan.
