The mission of Justice for Muslims Collective is to combat institutional and structural Islamophobia in the DC metro area through political education, grassroots organizing, mobilizations, and building alliances across movements.
Justice For Muslims Collective was originally founded in October 2016 as the DC Justice for Muslims Coalition. It was originally started by the Muslim American Women’s Policy Forum, Collective Action for Safe Spaces and Hindus for Justice. After Trump’s election, we had to expand our work and created programming that is focused on building Muslim power in the DMV. Our core programs include: 1) community defense; 2) healing and wellness for Muslim communities; 3) alliance and coalition building through the DMV Resist Islamophobia Network; and 4) the Muslim Woman’s Organizing Institute.
