What we're about

Meet other local progressive Muslims and get together in an open, compassionate and non-judgmental environment. We welcome new Muslims, old Muslims, LGBTQ Muslims, and Muslims in mixed-faith relationships. Our goal is to build a community in Los Angeles based on the core Islamic values of compassion, equality, social justice, and human rights. A place where you can be yourself AND Muslim!

This Los Angeles progressive Muslim Meetup is the founding community of Muslims for Progressive Values, a 501 (c) 3 national organization. For more details about MPV please visit www.mpvusa.org (http://mpvusa.org/).

Meetups are scheduled very regularly as announced. Activities include socializing, discussion, spiritual conversation, youth open mics, zikr, hiking, social activism/volunteer work, celebrating holidays, and experiencing art, film, and music.

We gather regularly mostly on Saturday afternoons for discussion and spiritual reflection. All who come with an open mind and loving heart are welcome--including non-Muslim friends, significant others, etc. Topics are announced in advance so that those interested can prepare for a meaningful and informed discussion.

Our monthly "It's Your Mic" event is on the 3rd Thursday of the month and starts back up January 2015.

In setting up our prayer space, we strive to create a caring environment in which no one is segregated or excluded. Attendees are invited in turn to lead prayer, regardless of gender. This means that the prayer may be led by a man or a woman, the sermon (khutbah) may be delivered by a man or a woman. The group of congregants prays and is seated together, like we do in Mecca. Of course, individual men and women can choose to stand/sit to one side or the other if they prefer. We also end our prayer segments with spiritual songs.

We are happy to announce that we have an officiant available. Officiant is open to marrying mixed faith couples as well as same-sex couples.

Please contact the organizer for more information.
