The Michigan Muslim Community Council has served the community for over 25 years. Our new name was adopted in 2012 after the merging of the Council of the Islamic Organizations of Michigan (CIOM) and the Islamic Shura Council of Michigan (ISCOM), and reflects our new focus on community building with our expanded board. MMCC is an umbrella organization that unifies and coordinates the large Muslim community in Michigan to make the state a better place for all.
The Muslim community of Michigan is making a contribution to support Detroit residents who are facing hardship from water shut offs. The Michigan Muslim Community Council (MMCC) in partnership with Islamic Relief USA (IR) – the largest Muslim charity organization in the United States – is giving $100,000 to help the people of Detroit. Over 60,000 households in Detroit have faced the risk of water shut off creating great hardship for many. The grant will be divided evenly between the Detroit Water Fund in partnership with United Way of Southeastern Michigan and Wayne Metro Community Council, to be used in direct assistance to disadvantaged Detroit families struggling to maintain their water utilities. MMCC and IR hope that this grant will encourage others to come forward with assistance since there is still great need. Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan led an effort to provide water relief to disadvantaged families by setting up the Detroit Water Fund and a 10/30/50 plan for residents to receive help. Other major donors to this effort include Ford and GM who each donated $50,000, and the United Way which donated $100,000.

Hundreds of community members across Michigan, elected officials including Congressman Andre Carson, State Reps George Darany, Dian Slavens, Rashida Tlaib, Kristy Pagan, and more blessed us with their presence for the sold out 600 person event.
