ALMA was founded in Feb 2002. My curiosity was sparked by a reporter who called to interview me about Latino Muslims in Atlanta. She wanted their views about life after the 9/11 attack. At that time there were no other Latino Muslims that I knew of. From that conversation, my curiosity was sparked and ALMA was born.
Our mission is to educate the Latino non-Muslims about Islam. As well as, unite other Latino Muslims in Georgia and surrounding areas. ALMA is also committed to assisting new Latino Shahadahs with their transition to Islam.
Our vision is to increase the Latino Muslim community.
Future goals Include:
- Bilingual Jumuah
- New shahadah classes
- Weekly dawah forum
- Local Bilingual newsletter
Insha Allah we will be successful.
Tu Hermana En Islam,
