MUSLIM EDUCATION RESOURCE COUNSEL INC wrote -
The next generations of American Muslims face a huge task before them: overcoming the widespread fear and misunderstanding of Islam and the open bigotry that often faces them in society. As a community, we are all concerned about the future of this country and the way our children will be received and treated by others, so how can we assure a more tolerant and inclusive society for our children?
At AFA, we believe the answer lies within our mission. Our mission is to help our students cultivate and nurture a thriving American Muslim identity that balances religious, academic and cultural knowledge and imparts the importance of civic involvement and charitable work.
Through our interdisciplinary and integrated programming approach, AFA students develop a commitment to community involvement, a sense of heightened social responsibility, respect for cultural diversity, and understanding of what it means to be an American citizen and a global citizen.
We believe that our success in this is will develop the compassionate and competent leaders that will not only address the world needs today but also shape our future. Be a partner in this change by investing in “Tomorrow’s Leaders."
