AMWEC is a non-profit women’s rights organization empowering Muslim women to confront bigotry in all its forms, celebrate our faith’s beautiful heritage, and build strong bonds with fellow Americans of all backgrounds. Founded as an uplifting alternative to old-guard male-dominated organizations, AMWEC gives Muslim American women the tools and opportunities to lead. We operate a community helpline for women in need; facilitate a law enforcement internship program for Muslim women; organize female career mentoring networks; and host pioneering women-led interfaith encounters. As maternal pillars of the community, AMWEC’s leaders feel a responsibility to uphold Islam’s core values of tolerance and personal responsibility to help build the future all American deserve.
