We’ve seen the work of Ta’leef Collective in creating an inclusive place for Muslims, well now meet MakeSpace. This is a group of Muslims in the DC Metro area trying to create a center where Muslims can come and grow without the barrier of entries in other places.

The mission of MakeSpace is to serve as an inclusive, responsive and transparently-managed hub for the Washington Metropolitan area Muslim community, with a strong focus on youth and professionals, to grow spiritually, intellectually and professionally and to develop an American Muslim identity rooted in the values of balance and compassion through educational programs, civic engagement initiatives, community service projects and recreational activities with the aim of making the timeless message of Islam relevant to the lives of all community members.
