Government Relations

At a time of new global opportunities and challenges, AIC provides pluralistic insights and policy solutions to decision makers in government, international institutions, the private sector, and civil society through its Office of Government Relations. AIC conducts constituency mobilization, research, analysis of policy, develops outreach and partnering initiatives that look to build interfaith and interethnic understanding and cooperation.

AIC engages in three types of government relations:

  • Advocacy – advising, and supporting legislation that promotes international religious freedom, civil rights, and democracy through participation.
  • Education – providing a forum to openly discuss the current and pertinent issues that relate to the American Muslim constituency.
  • Engagement – participating in the democratic process through voter registration, constituency building through our Interfaith Councils, and participation in a number of coalitions.
