Who we are

Founded by a handful of Muslim women in 2010, Coalition of Muslim Women of KW (CMW) is a federally registered not for profit organization with the mandate to empower Muslim women and girls to be leaders and change makers. CMW provides opportunities for personal and professional growth, and leadership and skills development for Muslim women while addressing issues of racism, discrimination and Islamophobia through advocacy, activism, and bridge building. CMW facilitates Muslim women’s active participation and engagement in civic and democratic life, tirelessly working towards building a society where Muslim women are valued, engaged, empowered and recognized as leaders.
