A New vision for promoting
harmony in America – the launch of American Muslim Institution.

Washington, DC – September 14, 2015. For decades
American journalists and thought leaders have been searching for moderate yet proactive
American Muslim voices to engage in discussions on major social and political
issues, including racism and violent extremism. Muslim thinkers and activists
committed to be such voices have formed the American Muslim Institution (AMI)
and aim to represent views of the moderate majority.
Date: Thursday, September 17, 2015
Time: 1:00 PM – 2:30 PM
Refreshments and a light lunch will be served
Location: Washington, D.C.
“We are dedicated to peace, prosperity and
security of the United States of America,” said Dr. Aquilur Rahman, AMI
Board Chairman of the newly formed American Muslim Institution.  Dr. Islam Siddiqui, President of the
organization added, “We need constructive solutions to current and
emerging problems emanating from wrong perceptions and misinformation about
Islam and Muslims in America.” 
“Our mission is to work for a world of co-existence
through inclusiveness and participation. As a member of a diverse family of
faiths, our efforts will be directed towards justice and equality to attain
peace for Americans with a firm grounding in commonly held values.” added
Dr. Mike Ghouse, the executive Director of the organization.
The organization has begun the process of gathering
some of the brightest minds from academia, the public sector, intellectuals,
activists and futurists to find pluralistic and positive solutions to the
problems facing the nation. AMI will strive to be a reliable source of
information and advice in dealing with the issues facing us.
America’s first Congressmen of the Islamic faith
elected to Congress,  Rep. Keith Ellison
of Minnesota and Rep. Andre Carson of Indiana, and community leaders across the
nation have expressed support for this initiative.  AMI Board Chairman Dr. Aquilur Rahman, AMI
President Dr. Islam Siddiqui and AMI Executive Director Mike Ghouse will
discuss the initiatives planned to promote peace, harmony and justice at the
formal launch of the organization.
 We will
continue to make concerted efforts to increase our participation in the civil
society and earn our trusted social, political and religious space in the
United States.
Ambassador Islam Siddiqui is a former U.S. Under
Secretary of Agriculture and Chief U.S. Agricultural Negotiator and was the
highest ranking American Muslim in the Clinton and Obama Administrations.
