The Inclusive Mosque Initiative is dedicated to creating safe and inclusive places of worship and spiritual practice, to the promotion of inclusive Islamic principles, and to centring and uplifting the voices and experiences of marginalised people within our communities.
To us, that means having a critical awareness of the dynamics of power and privilege, and working against racism (including anti-blackness, Islamophobia, anti-Semitism), homophobia, gender-based discrimination, poverty, ableism, and environmental damage and all the ways these intersect.
In particular, we express solidarity with immigrant, refugee, disabled, working-class and poor, Black and brown people, and we are critical of the State violence enacted on these communities through excessive surveillance, police brutality, the prison industrial complex, national borders, poverty and the Prevent duty, to name a few. In connection to this, we do not accept government funding.
In this process we are committed to learning from each other and welcoming differences of opinions and practice, and are willing to be held accountable by our community to ensure we uphold these values.
