Empowering Engaged Muslims
From protecting civil liberties to fixing our healthcare and strengthening the economy, we strive to help Muslim Americans be defined by what they stand for. Together we are helping to educate and mobilize our community to become a force for positive change and to build the next generation of civic leaders.
Voices from the Community
I am committed to the representation of my constituents. Emgage allows me to be a better elected official by providing opportunities through civic outreach events.
Emgage is an incredible asset to the community. Their mission to educate, engage, and empower the community via the political process is vital to the future of our nation.
Now, more than ever, civic literacy and engagement are critical for Muslim Americans to navigate the ever volatile political landscape.
I am so honored to have formed a collaborative relationship with members of Emgage and the Muslim community. I appreciate their willingness to work with me and engage with me on the issues that matter.
When the history of American Muslim political empowerment and engagement is written, Emgage and AJ Durrani will be in the first chapter.
Our nation needs to do a better job of celebrating who we are, where we come from and what religion we practice and I want to collaborate with Emgage to stand for those principals.
I am your proud partner to bring attention to the many concerns affecting the nation, state and community. Concerns that need to be addressed head on, collectively to demonstrate unity.
Emgage does great work in engaging Muslim, Arab, and South Asian American communities to participate in the political process and I look forward to continuing to work with them.
Emgage makes the heavy work of organizing, informing, and training voters across the Commonwealth look easy. At this critical time in our politics, their work empowers communities to take action
What We Do
We educate and empower Muslim Americans through educational events, voter initiatives, and leadership development for the purpose of creating a community of knowledgeable, motivated, and impactful citizens. Our core programs focus on voter engagement, leadership development and data analysis. From registering voters to hosting town halls to educating voters on how to effectively engage elected officials on important policy issues, Emgage seeks to transform the Muslim American electorate into an active and impactful community.
It starts from the ground up! Gain all the resources to mobilize your community to host town halls, candidate forums, phonebanking events and countless other empowering events.Learn More
Using tools and technologies, we collect data and produce reports on voter trends that drive American Muslims to the polls. The data also gives us the ability to provide toolkits and webinars to educate the community at large.Learn More
Our youth program is developing the next generation of civic leaders by providing training and professional opportunities to serve in internships or as volunteers in government, on campaigns, or at nonprofits.Learn More
Emgage was my first experience dealing with professionals who actually cared about me and my involvement within the community
When I first started working with Emgage, I wasn't really one for networking. I mostly kept to myself and tried to navigate through school and the workplace alone. I thought Emgage would just be another place to volunteer for a while then move on from, but I got sucked into something much greater.
As it turned out, I got to know lifelong friends and mentors I could turn to whenever I needed. They taught me that we are much stronger when we are helping each other. That our differences and disagreements are truly minutiae when you're building relationships grounded in mutual respect. Since then I've felt respected as a member of a community working towards something good, an organization that doesn't let details cloud its vision. Emgage is not just another association that gets caught up with divisions, our community has enough of that.
This organization showed me that communicating with people, even if they initially seem like an adversary, is how you work towards real unity and achieving your goals.
