Young Muslim Collective is a youth-led grassroots organization that hopes to make their existence present as a collective of Black Muslims to teach the broader non-Black Muslim community that they are different in the ways they experience islamophobia. They organize around racial and social justice through education and action. They are youth who want to create social change by uplifting their community and bringing awareness to the social issues that plague the various communities they belong to. By highlighting the struggles of the marginalized within the Muslim community in Minnesota, Young Muslim Collective works to create a space that allows for substantial growth.
