Muslim Legal Fund of America


Muslim Legal Fund of America cordially invites you to attend the Muslim Nonprofit Leadership Conference on Saturday, July 28th, 2018, at NIA Masjid & Community Center in Newark, NJ.

This conference delivers practical information about laws impacting mosques and other Muslim nonprofit organizations as well as the imams, board members, staff and attorneys who serve them. The goal of the conference sessions is to equip you and your fellow Muslim community leaders with the knowledge and resources for successfully navigating the increasingly complicated legal landscape affecting Muslims in America.

It is vital for American Muslim community leaders to be informed about the latest legal and social issues facing the community – especially in this increasingly hostile environment.
