Muslims for Progressive Values

MISSION:

Muslims for Progressive Values is an NPO founded in 2007 in the U.S. We are a grassroots, human rights organization that embodies and advocates for the traditional Quranic values of social justice, an understanding that informs our positions on women’s rights, LGBTQ I inclusion, freedom of expression and freedom of and from belief.

Since our inception, we have consultative status at the U.N. as an NGO and a founding member of Alliance of Inclusive Muslims, or AIM, an umbrella organization spanning 13 countries and 17 cities.

VISION:

We envision a future in which Islam is understood as a source of dignity, justice, compassion, and love for all humanity and the world. We look forward to the day when the Muslim community embodies these ten guiding principles.

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.

Since its inception in 2007, MPV has expanded its reach to include chapters and affiliates in 12 countries and 19 cities, and to securing consultative status at the United Nations.

At the United Nations, MPV challenges human rights abuses in Muslim-majority countries in the name of Sharia law. We do so by hosting panels and forums and filing shadow reports at the U.N.
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.
