My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Muslims for Progressive Values, Los Angeles, CA, USA
I've been a member of MPV since its inception and I support MPV because of its principles and the way MPV remains inclusive and welcoming to all Muslims and non-Muslims. My faith continues to deepen and expand as I continue to outreach to other Muslims across the nation. MPV has established an open community that is an alternative to the more orthodox views held by 20 percent of Muslims. MPV is expanding it's appeal to Muslims internationally. MPV supports voices less often heard in the discussion of Muslims in the West.

As Director of LGBT Outreach, I continue to work on the 12 years of scholastic and religious lecturing on LGBT Muslim issues.
