About Us

3.3 million Muslims are located in the United States and over 60,000 of these Muslims reside in the state of Utah. With the current presidency and media portrayal of Muslims in America, this non-profit organization was created: Utah Muslim Civic League (UMCL). Muslims in the Salt Lake Valley have gathered to become allies and utilize their allyships in a manner which allows them to fight for the human and civil rights of minority populations.

The aim of this organization is to:

  • Humanize Muslims and minority populations in the state of Utah through interfaith, rallying, lobbying, advocacy and other unified efforts.
  • Understand the issues that plague minority populations in Utah.
  • Give a voice to the communities who are overlooked and often unheard!
  • Make a difference through equality and unity.

NOTE: The UMCL is not a religious organization and is strictly civic in manner.
