Policy

More than ever we see numerous attempts by elected officials from all levels that try to marginalize the Muslim community with fear and division. ACO was established to ensure that the voice of ordinary Tennessee Muslims will be at the forefront of this public discourse. Our goal is to encourage community civic participation at all levels of the government while changing the Muslim community’s perception of the political system.

Below you can find information on proposed state legislation that will have a direct impact on our communities. You will be able to track each bill with its detailed information including the Bill number, summary, complete text, and where it stands currently in the process.

We will be your eyes and ears on the ground and continue to defend Islam and the local Muslim community as well as religious freedom and promoting open and inclusive policies.
