MYNA CONVENTION 2018

Join us at this year's Muslim Youth of North America Convention, in conjunction with ISNA's Annual Convention, to learn more about how you can take charge of your own spiritual life, get involved in your local community, and become part of national and global conversations about the issues you are passionate about. Don’t forget to stop by at one of our bazaar booths, located in the main bazaar area as well as the 3rd Space Youth Lounge to buy brand-new additions to our merchandise collection and find out how you can get involved with MYNA.

If not us, who? If not now, when?

Be the Hope. Be the Change

If not you, then who will help eradicate hunger? If not you, then who will train for the next state championship? If not you, then who will rise to the occasion? If not you, then who will tell your story? If not you, then who will connect your heart to God? If not you, then who will be there, on the receiving end, to carry the torch of our community?

The answer is no one. No one is made for this task other than you. This moment was written for you.

Muslim youth are not the leaders of tomorrow. We are the leaders of today. We are important voices in our local and national organizations. In the eyes of Allah (SWT), we are responsible for our own actions. It is time that we step up to the plate and empower ourselves and our communities. It is time for us to engage in adult conversations, because Islamophobia, racism, violence, doubt, poverty, addiction, women's issues, and love for our Prophet (SAW) matter to us too.

Step out of the shadows and into the light.

You are the missing link. You are the one with the key. You are the one who can open the door.

If not you, then no one else. It must be you.

Be the Hope. Be the Change.
