Welcome to the Muslim American Public Affairs Council Website

MAPAC is an organization that aims to lobby all levels of government on behalf of the American Muslim community and to educate Muslims about the American political process. MAPAC focuses on politics and its effect on Muslims in America and on representing traditional Islamic values in the political process. MAPAC supports our Islamic Organizations in fulfilling their purposes and responsibilities for religious affairs in our area. MAPAC also works to foster inter-religious and inter-ethnic understanding, interaction and cooperation for enhancing the common good and dignity of all human beings and strives for assurance of basic human rights for all Americans and for all Muslims.


The MAPAC Voter Recommendations are ready. Two separate lists have been prepared, one for Durham County and one for Wake County. Muslims living in other counties will still find these lists useful as they contain recommended candidates for Statewide elections for President, Governor, Lt. Governor, other Council of State positions and, IMPORTANTLY FOR STATEWIDE JUDICIAL ELECTIONS. Also, some of the US Congressional Seats and State Legislature seats for which recommendations are made also serve counties adjacent to or near to Durham and Wake Counties. The lists may be downloaded by clicking on the links below:
