SoFloMuslims FlyerBackground

On January 29, 2017, representatives from over 40 Muslim organizations & Masajid across South Florida met in a Town Hall to discuss working together for common interest in a unified platform, (or Federation). A total of nine committees were formed along with a coordinating committee, to develop strategies to address the various needs of the growing South Florida Muslim Community.

Committee members are meeting to develop strategic goals based on brainstorming taken place over the past few months. Alhamdulillah, some committees have already executed on key projects that will have a high-impact to our community. Specifically, the South Florida Muslim Portal was developed by the communications committee. The end result is a one-stop information source for events, organizations, and services for South Florida Muslims and others.
