Closing the Gap

The Muslim Public Affairs Council spends $370,000 a year to house dozens of fellows at its Washington and Hollywood offices, and seeks your help to raise $1 million to triple the number of annual participants. Your support goes toward housing, living stipends and transportation for another three, or even four, 10-week cycles of MPAC interns. In Washington, more than 20 fellows work as staff members for Congress, preparing to become future city officials, members of Congress, CEOs and nonprofit executive directors. In Hollywood, interns work with the MPAC bureau to advocate for better film and TV stories about Muslims, either consulting with industry professionals or organizing screenwriting labs, roundtables and networking events. A portion of the funds raised go toward scholarships for those from underprivileged communities.
