We aim to reduce discrimination faced by those who leave Islam, advocate for acceptance of religious dissent, and promote secular values.

We strive to amplify diverse ex-Muslim voices and experiences, and stand against those who seek to stifle criticism of Islam.
EXMNA is the first organization of its kind to establish communities exclusive to ex-Muslims in order to foster a sense of camaraderie and offer a space free of judgement for lack of religiosity. EXMNA has established local chapters in over 20 cities across the United States and Canada, with hundreds of ex-Muslims taking part in local meetups.
As part of our mission to raise the voices and ideas of ex-Muslims, we launched The Ex-Muslim – the world’s first and only online magazine and blogroll offering a nuanced insight on Islam from former Muslims. We also produce the Life Beyond Faith series – a celebration of freethought and ex-Muslims from a variety of backgrounds. We organize the Normalizing Dissent tour – a series of live-event, primarily at American and Canadian campuses – to provoke thought and provide much-needed diversity of thought.
