After the events of 9/11, misinformation regarding Muslims and Islam rapidly spread throughout the nation and Indiana alike. A small group of leaders within the Muslim Hoosier community realized that the most effective path to dispel these misconceptions was to rally Muslim Hoosiers together and encourage civic engagement, establish interfaith alliances, and connect intra-faith communities throughout the state.
From this small group, the Muslim Alliance of Indiana was born. Since its inception, MAI has consistently worked for an Indiana that not only ensures social justice for Muslims, but for all Hoosiers. We recognize that in bringing Muslims together, we reignite those tenets of our faith that lead us to serve and to dedicate ourselves to a better world. We are committed to engaging Indiana Muslims through service and civic engagement as we foster cooperation and understanding both with other religious communities and civic and service organizations.
We believe peace and understanding are not simply a destination, but a journey and we hope you will join us for the ride.
