Advocacy

AIC, through its Office of Government & International Relations, recommends, advises and supports legislation that promotes international religious freedom, civil rights, and democracy through participation in government programming in the United States as well as all over the world. AIC accomplishes this through letter signing initiatives, campaigns, meetings with congressional leaders and suggesting policy solutions.

Legislative Tracking and Policy Analysis Papers

AIC conducts daily legislative tracking on issues relating to civil rights using the U.S. Constitution and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as our benchmark. We stay ever vigilant to ensure that American Muslim rights are not curbed by policy and rhetoric.

AIC drafts position papers on the current and pertinent issues relevant to American Muslims. AIC also drafts policy analysis papers that are issued directly to the U.S. Congress and Executive Branches of Government. AIC partners with many other organizations on issues relating directly to the U.S. Constitution and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
