Barack Obama on Creating Partnerships with Muslim American Communities at the Islamic Society of Baltimore

February 3, 2016

[...L]et me conclude by saying that as Muslim communities stand up for the future that you believe in, that you exhibit in your daily lives, as you teach your children, America will be your partner. We will—I will—do everything I can to lift up the multiplicity of Muslim voices that promote pluralism and peace. We will continue to reach out to young Muslims around the world, empowering them with science and technology and entrepreneurship, so they can pursue their God-given potential, and help build up their communities and provide opportunity. It’s why we will continue to partner with Muslim American communities—not just to help you protect against extremist threats, but to expand health care and education and opportunity—because that’s the best way to build strong, resilient communities.
