MALA is a proud NGO member of the United Nations Economic and Social Council

Founded in Chicago in 2015, we have grown into a national organization mobilizing next-generation leaders in our Muslim community across the United States by sharing our stories, celebrating our heritage and building bridges to overcome divides. Our mission is to empower Muslim Americans to thrive, pursue our own unique American dreams and achieve recognition for our community’s dynamic contributions through art and culture to America.
