Who We Are
In 1994, Milwaukee Muslim Women’s Coalition (MMWC) began as a local resource organization dedicated to promoting an accurate understanding of Islam and Muslim women. Our mission is to lead positive community change through advocacy, dialogue, education, using faith-based values to ensure dignity and equity for all.
The MMWC provides educational materials and resources to promote understanding to schools, universities, businesses, law enforcement agencies, healthcare centers, religious establishments, community organizations and the media.
Our reach has expanded to include leadership and job training programs for women and girls. We empower women to be economically secure, strengthen their family relationships, and realize their value in community and country. We envision world in which all women can reach their fullest potential.
