Muslim Legal Fund of America's Muslim Nonprofit Leadership Conference delivers practical information about laws impacting mosques and other Muslim nonprofit organizations as well as the imams, board members, staff and attorneys who serve them.
The goal of this one-day intensive law conference is to equip Muslim community leaders with the knowledge and resources for successfully navigating the increasingly complicated legal landscape affecting Muslims in America.
Marwa Elbially attended Albany Law School, where she was President of the local chapter of the Muslim Law Students Association. While in law school she had the opportunity to work with Human Rights Associations on issues affecting prisoners, the Low Income Taxpayer Clinic, and the Albany County District Attorney’s Office. She also studied at the René Cassin International Institute of Human Rights in Strasbourg, France, during the summer of 2009.
After graduation, she continued her activism on issues related to civil liberties for Muslims and underrepresented groups. As a volunteer with the National Coalition to Protect Civil Freedoms (NCPCF), she assisted in the development of an extensive database of pre-emptively prosecuted defendants and served as NCPCF Interim Executive Director for a period of time in 2014.
Attorney Shari Crittendon served as General Counsel for United Negro College Fund, which is the nation’s largest minority education assistance organization and provides operating funds for member historically black colleges and universities as well as scholarships for students at roughly 900 educational institutions. Shari is spearheading CLCMA’s nonprofit legal services division. Her experience managing governance, compliance and other legal issues for UNCF member institutions across the nation will prove invaluable to the American Muslim community.
Dalia Mogahed is the Director of Research at the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding, where she leads the organization’s pioneering research and thought leadership programs on American Muslims. Mogahed is former Executive Director of the Gallup Center for Muslim Studies, where she led the analysis of surveys of Muslim communities worldwide.
With John L. Esposito, she co-authored the book Who Speaks for Islam? What a Billion Muslims Really Think. President Barack Obama appointed Mogahed to the President’s Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships in 2009. She was invited to testify before the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations about U.S. engagement with Muslim communities. Her 2016 TED talk was named one of the top TED talks that year. She is a frequent expert commentator in global media outlets and international forums. She is also the CEO of Mogahed Consulting.
Khalil Meek is Executive Director of Muslim Legal Fund of America, which is the national charity leading the struggle against anti-Muslim injustice in American courtrooms. As the organization's executive director, Meek spearheaded the initiatives to grant fund Constitutional Law Center for Muslims in America, a nonprofit law firm dedicated to defending the legal rights of American Muslims. He also organized Muslim Nonprofit Leadership Conference, a series of conferences that delivers important information on legal and social challenges facing the Muslim community.
Whether it’s the Muslim ban, immigration delays, watchlists or compliance-related nonprofit shutdowns, American Muslim community leaders face many legal challenges. Understanding these challenges is the first step in safeguarding organizations and the communities they serve.
More than 300 Muslim Nonprofits lost 501c3 status since 2011
