Education

Speakers Bureau

The Speakers Bureau provides provides trainings, presentations, and panel discussions to non-Muslim audiences in Connecticut. We have been privileged to engage houses of worship, libraries, community centers, educational institutions, hospitals, and state agencies in these conversations. Some of the topics we’ve covered have included: “Introduction to Islamic beliefs and Practices”, “Women in Islam”, “Shariah in Islam”, “Jihad in Islam”, “Democracy and Islam”, among others. These speaking engagements are conducted throughout the year.

Community Service

Shelter Serve

On the first Saturday of each month, the Muslim Coalition of Connecticut coordinates a food shelter serve in Hartford. Volunteers cook, prepare, and serve food to the homeless population.

Upcoming volunteer opportunities:

Community Service

National Day of Service

The Muslim Coalition of Connecticut participates in the annual National Day of Service by hosting various drives to collect clothes, towels, and other toiletries for those in need. Every year we work with multiple community collaborators to collect and distribute over 700 towels to local Hartford shelters.

Coming soon

We will soon be adding the ability to purchase a donation package to support this cause.

Community Service

Muslims against Hunger

Over two hundred Muslims from across Connecticut come together each year to participate in Foodshare’s annual Walk Against Hunger. Our team (Muslims Against Hunger) raises money before and during the walk, averaging over $5000 in donations each year—money which goes towards feeding the needy in the local community. Before the walk starts, we also participate in Foodshare’s Interfaith prayer.

Community Service

Habitat for Humanity

MCCT participates in Habitat for Humanity Builds, making affordable housing a reality for low income Hartford residents. Our group participates 4-6 times a year with Habitat for Humanity. 

Collaboration

Eid Carnival

​Every year, the Eid Carnival brings together the Muslim community in celebration of Eid Ul-Fitr, the holiday marking the end of Ramadan, the month of Fasting. Over 1,500 Muslims from CT and neighboring states celebrate Eid Ul-Fitr at Lake Compounce in Bristol, CT each year.
