Interfaith Councils

AIC’s Interfaith Councils provide a venue for the American Muslim community to come together to express and to celebrate community’s cultural richness through events, forums for dialogue on issues and establishes relationships through community multicultural events and round table discussions. AIC provides and alternative community setting to meet, interact and share.

The Interfaith Councils promotes pluralistic American Muslim identity and interfaith understanding. Council members include lay leaders who are professionals in diverse fields and reflect the broad range of  American Muslims identities. The council’s specific goals are to celebrate American Muslim cultural diversity; provide responsible civic leadership on intra- and inter-communal relations; and enrich civic life via compelling community events. The council’s efforts focus on several key areas: social programs, intercultural events, civic advocacy, and community service. The council also offers the Witness Series as a signature event series. The interfaith councils hold four round table discussions and one summit annually to discuss issues and interfaith and intercultural events.

Currently there are Interfaith Councils in Washington, D.C. and Boston. Please contact AIC for more information.
