Can you tell me more about Muslim American Heritage Month?

Muslim American Heritage Month celebrates the contributions of Americans of Muslim heritage to the United States from its founding through the present day. More than 65,000 Muslim Americans make up one of the ten largest religious groups in Los Angeles County.

Muslim Americans identify racially as white, black, Asian, and Arab in roughly equal proportions with more than half born in the US. Many Muslim Americans pursue the American dream and contribute to the nation’s economy as business owners and entrepreneurs. Their service to the community and country is often motivated by the values of their faith, which are: care, compassion, and concern for humankind. These are major themes found in the Quran.

Muslim American contributions to arts, culture, science, engineering, and medicine have inspired, expanded understanding, and enhanced the quality of life for all who live in the US.
