Organizing & Advocacy

IMAN’s organizing and advocacy agenda is driven by leaders who are directly affected by and deeply invested in the issues, and guided by the organization’s deep spiritual convictions around principles of human dignity, social justice and compassion, particularly for marginalized people of color in the inner-city.

IMAN mobilizes communities across the larger Chicagoland area around several issues directly affecting the working poor living in the inner-city, from criminal justice reform to public health.
