Voice of America News reported on the American Muslim Civic Leadership Institute and its efforts to train a new generation of civic leaders.
Brie Loskota is the managing director for the USC Center for Religion and Civic Culture, which created the institute. “We see the same few groups shouting past each other, trying to make inroads, and we see leaders who have all of these amazing skills isolated from each other and unable to really meet the needs of their community, and also meet this other demand to see Muslims actively engaging the public square in ways that are productive,” said Loskota.
