Illinois is a place where everyone is encouraged to participate in State government. The Muslim American community is one of extraordinary diversity – with Muslims of countless races and ethnicities and with roots in every corner of the world.
Recognizing these facts, the Muslim American Advisory Council (MAAC) was created to advise the Governor on ways to advance the role and civic participation of Muslims in Illinois as well as ways in which Illinois can enhance trade and cooperation with Muslim-majority countries.
We welcome you to explore our website to learn more about MAAC.
