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).

What is 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.

The CIOGC Illinois Muslim Action Day (IMAD) Page Program gives Muslim youth from the Chicagoland area an exciting chance to learn about the legislative process in Illinois by shadowing state lawmakers at their offices in Springfield, Illinois.
