Our mission is to be the unifying federation of Islamic organizations of greater Chicagoland, the leading advocate of Muslim community interests and a catalyst for enriching American society.


Since 2009, CIOGC has provided the greater Chicago Muslim community the opportunity to engage with Illinois legislators in a meaningful way through Illinois Muslim Action Day (IMAD).

IMAD has provided opportunities to raise prominent issues of the Muslim community with our state legislative leaders and to serve as a platform for building stronger relationships with our civic and faith partners. 

This year Muslim Action Day was held virtually on March 23, 2022 with keynote speakers Ilhan Omar and Jan Schakowsky. The topic was the passage of bill H.R.5665 (Combating International Islamophobia Act).

In 2021, we advocated for immigration policy reform and public recognition of Muslim leaders.
