American Muslim Voice

Please don’t let our name mislead you. AMV Foundation was founded by American Muslims to work for and with ALL Americans.

Our mission is to foster friendships among all Americans by bridging cultural and religious gaps. We also work towards protecting and preserving civil liberties and constitutional rights for ALL.

Our History

The AMV Foundation was established in July 2003 as a grassroots, nonviolent, inclusive, civil, immigrant and human rights organization. We build alliances & genuine partnerships with like-minded groups and individuals. Our goal is to unite us all under the umbrella of our common humanity. We celebrate diversity & value all human beings regardless of race, religion, social status or creed.

AMV Foundation draws inspiration and seeks guidance from communities that have been persecuted and isolated in the past. Rather than exclude them from community-building efforts, we have gained their trust through sincerity and have gained the support of many groups by extending friendship consistently and standing with them in solidarity in times of vulnerability.  We truly believe that to ask for support, one must offer it and follow through, first.

 Our approach to community-building is a simple one. The organization hosts open houses, peace picnics and peace conventions annually to unite neighbors and strangers alike.  We also provide the Muslim perspective through teach-in opportunities at schools, colleges, universities, places of worship and peace conventions.

Successful events like these separate AMV Foundation from the scores of organizations that do not go that extra step beyond interfaith dialogue. These events illustrate AMV Foundation's vision of peace through sowing seeds of friendship.
