Muslims for Progressive Values' (MPV) mission is to embody and be an effective voice of the traditional Quranic ideals of human dignity, egalitariansim, compasison and social justice.
We envision Islam and an Islamic community that embodies these values. Further, we envision a future where Islam is understood as a source of dignity, justice, compassion and love for all humanity and the world.
WHAT WE DO:
MPV establishes and nurtures vibrant progressive Muslim communities. We do this by creating opportunities for religious discourse, volunteer and community activities, and cultural events bringing together the arts, spirituality and social activism.
MPV is a progressive Muslim voice on contemporary issues. We voice our perspectives by participating in civil discourse, engaging with the media and government entities, and by partnering with both Muslim and non-Muslim progressive organizations.
MPV promotes theologically-sound frameworks for Islamic liberalism. We seek to reinvigorate the Islamic tradition of ijtihad (critical engagement and interpretation of sacred texts) and intellectual discourse. We do this by collaborating with religious scholars and developing position papers on theological issues that are accessible to a wide audience.
