Emgage Action is a political organization that “seeks to mobilize its members to advocate for issues that define who American Muslims are by what they stand for.”
On their website it states:
The Muslim Talent Project (MTP) seeks to identify candidates, build a sophisticated resume bank and screen for top talent. Our goal is to increase the number of Muslim Americans serving in government at all levels.
Historically, Muslim Americans have been underrepresented in the White House and Administration agencies. In an effort to increase the number of Muslims across the government, Emgage Action is working collectively to identify and nominate Muslim candidates for incoming political appointments and positions in other sectors under the Muslim Talent Project program. The new project will proactively work to streamline the process for Muslim Americans interested in serving our nation at all levels of government.
With the Muslim Talent Project, Emgage Action is building a pipeline of Muslim leaders and extending the influence of Muslims to the policy decisions that impact our communities most.
