It is this support for the Muslim community in America that makes ISNA a strong advocate of their cause.
ISNA has been a supporter of CFGU since it’s founding, and joins in an effort to spread the word about the program, and attract the best and brightest young Muslim Americans to come intern in Washington. The program has produced numerous leaders since it’s inception, and will continue to be among the best opportunities for Muslim Americans to get involved in the countless opportunities Washington has to offer.
