 WHO WE ARE 

We are a global coalition founded by Muslims, ex-Muslims, academics, scholars, authors, and activists who stand for peace, democracy, liberty, and secular governance and who are deeply concerned by the continuing threat posed to these values by the actions and demands of Islamists in various places around the world.

We embrace democratic values founded in reason and critical debate and the fundamental freedoms set forth in the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights of 1948.

We support liberty and dignity for all persons, including women and girls, and whether or not one is Muslim.

We believe that, without fear of apostasy and blasphemy laws, every individual has the right to speak freely, engage in critical thinking, publicly express criticism of Islam, and has the right to freedom of religion or to have no religion.

Because we value peace and democracy, we reject the acceptance of and justifications for jihad, the use of dawa for political purposes, and advocacy for the institutionalization of sharia.

 We invite all like-minded people to join in supporting these core principles.

October 25, 2022

We wish to express our solidarity with the brave protestors who have risen up against the theocratic regime of the Islamic Republic. The brutal death of Mahsa Amini has inspired and emboldened her fellow Iranians, both in Iran and in the diaspora, to resist oppression and demand freedom.

CLARITy Coalition Statement on Salman Rushdie
August 12, 2022

We are sure that, like us, you are still processing the shock and horror at the news of the attack on Salman Rushdie at the Chautauqua Institution, New York.
