Mobilizing for Transformations

MASUNY PACE is devoted to lifting up the voices and visibility of Muslim Americans. We want to build and engage leaders to become agents for positive social change.

Civic Engagement

Construct an educated, engaged and motivated Muslim electorate with an integrated voter engagement strategy.


MASUNY PACE is dedicated to push the boundaries on advocacy, including organizing National Capitol Advocacy Days and working in coalition to engage in public policy.

Our Narrative

We are the writers of our own stories. MASUNY PACE works on curating spaces and developing relationships where we take charge of our own stories as a Muslim community and build a positive values-based narrative that centers our diverse Muslim population.

Political Empowerment

Our democracy is strong when we all participate fully in the political process. By engaging in voter registration, building an informed and civically engaged community, and getting out the Muslim vote, we can shift the political landscape for better representation.

Social Justice

We are dedicated to building a world that is just and equitable. A world where we stand strong against injustice and declare loud and clearly #BlackLivesMatter, that families belong together and we must #ReuniteEveryChild. We support DACA and a #CleanDreamAct. Join us as changemakers for social justice.
