The Muslim American Leadership Alliance (MALA) is a 501c3 civil rights organization committed to promoting individual freedom and celebrating Muslim-American heritage. An alliance dedicated to leadership through integrity, MALA provides a platform for people to share their stories; nurtures emerging community leaders; and unites Americans of all backgrounds to advance constructive solutions to extremism and human rights abuses. We embrace free expression, gender equality, and pluralism as cherished universal ideals.


MOTTO – “Elevate Y/our Journey”
  • Journey: Our identities are constantly unfolding as we make choices and define ourselves.
  • Y/Our: Because individual progress is linked to community progress – and vice versa – we come together while respecting individuality.
  • Elevate: Because values define our journeys and choices have consequences, we strive to do better and achieve meaningful impact.
