ABOUT US

The Emerald Project is a non-partisan, non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the understanding of Islam. Emerald Project began in Salt Lake City, Utah in 2017 as an initiative to educate the community on Islamophobia or the fear of Islam and Muslims. We are cultural brokers striving to bridge the gap by separating Islam, culture, and politics. Emerald seeks to promote greater understanding between Muslims and Non-Muslims. Emerald Project is also uniquely dedicated to combating the misrepresentation of Islam internally within the Muslim community.
