Enhanced Engagement with Arab and Muslim American Communities

Enhanced Engagement with Arab and Muslim American Communities

This initiative brings together leaders from the Somali-American community to discuss with the FBI issues important to their community. The group helps build relationships based on mutual respect and understanding.

The goals are simple:

  • Protecting the national security of the United States and enforcing federal law;
  • Preserving our common values that are reflected in the Constitution and laws of the United States, such as our respect for civil rights and civil liberties, our embracing of diversity, and our commitment to religious freedom;
  • Providing a forum for listening to community concerns and addressing civil rights and anti-crime issues; and
  • Improving understanding between law enforcement and communities to ensure that we build the same type of trusting relationships and partnerships we seek with diverse communities across the country.

For more information about our enhanced engagement with the Somali-American community, please contact the Minneapolis FBI Community Outreach Specialist at (763) 569-8000.
