Statement of Intent

The Inclusive Mosque Initiative is dedicated to creating places of worship and spiritual practice for marginalised communities, and to the promotion of inclusive Islamic principles. In this, we are committed to centring and uplifting the voices and experiences of marginalised people within our communities, and creating inclusive, safer spaces.

To us, that means having a critical awareness of the dynamics of power and privilege, and working against racism (including anti-blackness, Islamophobia, anti-Semitism), homophobia, gender-based discrimination, poverty, ableism, and environmental damage and all the ways these intersect.

In particular we express solidarity with immigrant, refugee, disabled, working class and poor, Black and brown people, and we are critical of the State violence enacted on these communities through excessive surveillance, police brutality, the prison industrial complex, national borders, poverty and the Prevent duty, to name a few. In connection to this, we do not accept government funding.

In this process we are committed to learning from each other and welcoming differences of opinions and practice, and are willing to be held accountable by our community to ensure we uphold these values.
