AMCLI Advisory Council 2021-2022

In 2006, a group of Muslim civic leaders came together and shared ideas, stories, disappointments, and triumphs. They developed a renewed sense of community and cultivated a shared belief that their civic work, if strategically nurtured, could lead to a vibrant and civically engaged Muslim community in America. The American Muslim Civic Leadership Institute was born out of that meeting. Over the past 15 years, AMCLI has actively supported and unlocked the leadership potential of generations of American Muslim civic leaders who are able to fully engage co-religionists, constituents, and fellow citizens in the work of building better communities for all.

AMCLI is excited to share with you the members of the inaugural AMCLI Advisory Council.
