American Islamic Leadership Coalition (AILC)
As American Muslim leaders, we come together to defend the US Constitution, uphold religious pluralism, protect American security and cherish genuine diversity in the practice of our faith.
AILC is foundationally dedicated to protecting the principles of liberty and freedom for every American citizen and especially for the diverse voices within American Muslim communities. Its leadership seeks to bring the ideas of modernity, reform, diversity, and genuine pluralism to Muslims across North America. AILC is a broad coalition of diverse American Muslim leaders and organizations. They come together in recognition of the need to demonstrate to America’s thought leaders the deep diversity which defines American Muslims and Islam in America.
AILC officially formed in September 2010 and publicly launched with its support of the March 10, 2011 congressional hearings on “The Extent of Radicalization in the American Muslim Community and that Community’s Response.” Since that time Participation has grown to more than 35 Muslim leaders in the US and Canada.
Presently, AILC is drafting a plan of action for how western secular democracies can facilitate the growth of individual liberty and democratic infrastructure in the Arab countries that have seen unparalleled change in the spring of 2011. AILC sees an opportunity to develop opportunities for freedom to take hold in these countries which will fundamentally change the relationship with the west.
