Global Outreach

Muslim Advocacy Task Force

 
 

Launched in Spring 2016, the VCU Muslim Advocacy Task Force is designed to: 

Educate

the VCU and Greater Richmond community about how to become allies for Muslim people and those who practice the Islamic faith.

Advocate

for Muslim students who may experience anti-Muslim bias on campus and in the greater community.

Celebrate

diversity at VCU by ensuring that our campus remains a welcoming and inclusive community for people of all cultures.
