Welcome to ACMY!

The American Congress of Muslim Youth is a grassroots organization that aims to provide a format, voice and organizing mechanism to American Muslims who wish to pursue a progressive intellectual, social and political agenda.

Our work is guided by the following principles:

  1. We do not follow the political agenda of any government or school of thought. We pledge to support, defend and protect the constitution of the United States of America.
  2. We affirm that justice and compassion should be the guiding principles for all aspects of human contact. Islam holds that these qualities are characteristic of Allah as revealed in the Holy Qu'ran, divine qualities that are the ethical virtues to which all human beings should aspire to emulate.
  3. We affirm our commitment to social and economic justice and our opposition to the culture of militarism and violence. We will support efforts for universal health care, public education, the protection of our environment, and the eradication of poverty around the world.
