The American Islamic Congress (AIC) is an independent, non-partisan non-profit organization dedicated to building intercultural understanding and to supporting human and civil rights. AIC aims to offer a positive example for the global Muslim community by advocating for women’s equality, free expression, and nonviolence in the United States and across the Muslim world. Project Nur, AIC's campus-led initiative, is a distinct and alternative Muslim voice: a civic identity grounded in pluralism and moderate thinking and action. It emphasizes civic action with the goal of forging a cohesive and mutually respectful multicultural community of university students committed to the advancement of human rights, civil rights, social justice, tolerance, understanding, and co-existence.
