American Muslim single identity politics is when powerful Muslim organizations project to the American public that all Muslims in the United States have the same politics. It’s when we tell America that we all are petrified of islamophobia, that we all have identity issues, and that we all are still trying to find our place in America. That is a completely false and misleading narrative that has cost American Muslims our moral credibility. However, we can start to get it back by accepting that Muslims are just as human and fallible as anyone else. Americans can understand that, but we will never accept that anyone who has criticism, or a negative impression of Islam or Muslims is automatically a bigot or an islamophobe.
Every place in the world, where Muslims are under oppression, there are organizations, groups, advocates, armies and governments who come to their aid with money, resourses, material and tactical support, and advisory assistance, and political lobbying, to help address their particular crisis.

Our work at Mosque Without Borders is entirely funded by people like you who believe that the time has come for Muslim Americans to have open and honest conversations with ourselves about issues like racism amongst Muslims, sectarianism and its divisive consequences, and the growing chasm between the two Muslim Americas (immigrants and converts). These are issues of civilizational consequence that we cannot ignore any longer. Whether you help through monetary donations, volunteering your time, or spreading our mission through word-of-mouth, thank you. We couldn't accomplish our goals without the help of supporters like you.
Talk to me. Intersted in volunteering, got a question? let's have it.
