Muslim American Society
The Muslim American Society of Boston runs your center ISBCC. The Muslim American Society of Boston works to educate, organize, and empower the Muslim community to be active, contributing citizens who are civically engaged, and who are motivated by Islamic values. We strive to achieve this mission by:
Teaching young Muslims social responsibility and equipping them for leadership
Educating and organizing the Muslim community towards civic engagement
Developing interfaith understanding and cooperation, and partaking in coalitions on issues of shared concern
Faith and cultural programming for youth and families.
Some Accomplishments of MAS-Boston
- Co-convening a monthly forum with FBI, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Homeland Security, State and Boston Police, and US and State Attorney Generals’ offices, to educate officials about the needs and concerns of the Muslim community and discuss with the community law enforcement concerns relating to terrorism and security.
- The director of MAS Boston co-chaired the Greater Boston Interfaith Organization’s 10th anniversary action on May 27th 2008 that featured the Governor, the Mayor and the Speaker of the House. Also attending were over 15 state legislators, over 30 corporate and philanthropic leaders, and 1700 community members from over 65 faith institutions.
- Training over 1500 law enforcement officers from Boston Police, TSA, and ICE about Islam and Muslims in order to improve relations and cooperation with community and to improve security operations. The Outreach Director was awarded by the Justice Department for the quality of these trainings.
- Mobilizing a coalition of community activists, leaders, and lawyers to engage in a grassroots campaign to address the closure without explanation of accounts of a large number of Muslims and Arabs in Boston by Fleet Bank. Resulted in the bank re-opening most accounts and dedicating a $50,000 fund towards diversity training and discrimination redress.
- Conducting a Teens Program that has served over 800 teens in community service, civic engagement, interfaith dialogue and leadership development programs.
- Creating dialogue for social justice between young Jewish professionals and young Muslim professionals that resulted in easing some of the tension between the communities in the wake of the Israel-Lebanon crisis in the summer of 2006
