The national celebration of Muslim American Heritage brings together a wide range of nonprofits and institutions – including museums, corporate sponsors, community organizations, foundations, and media companies. Our coalition’s diverse organizational members include:
United Nations Economic and Social Council
MALA is an accredited organization with the UN ECOSOC, which convenes a diverse group of high-level representatives from Government, the private sector, civil society and academia, as it serves as the central forum for discussing international economic and social issues, and formulating policy recommendations addressed to member states and the United Nations System.
Council for Inclusive Capitalism
MALA has been an organizational coalition partner with the Council for Inclusive Capitalism, a global movement of leaders doing business in ways that benefit people, our communities, and the planet.
MALA has partnered with UNICEF USA since 2015 as part of their Faith‑Based Partnerships, including a national Interfaith Movement.
Islamic art was a formative inspiration for Louis Cartier and the Maison Cartier in the early 20th century. Cartier’s major exhibition exclusively in North America was championed by MALA in the United States, as it explored the analysis and adaption by Cartier’s designers of shapes, techniques, and materials from India, the Middle East, and North Africa.
