A Project of the Council on American-Islamic Relations


Concerned Women for America

On its web site’s “Who We Are” section, Concerned Women for America is described as “the nation’s largest public policy women’s organization with a rich 30-year history of helping our members across the country bring Biblical principles into all levels of public policy.”

The group has involved itself in anti-Islam legislative efforts in many states, including Florida and North Carolina, where it drew praise from the bill’s sponsor.

In early 2017, the organization’s Missouri chapter hosted an event alleging “The influence of Islam in the Common Core standards is now undeniable.” The event flyer expalined, “Make plans to attend this event to learn more about how to identify the Islamic influence and what you can do to stop it.”

An extract from a 2009 edition of CWA’s Family Voice magazine relates, “[W]e saw the theistic worldview of Islam come face-to-face with the Biblical worldview of Christianity. A worldview that teaches a doctrine of force and violent submission to an unpredictable god faced a worldview that teaches a doctrine centered on a holy and just God who brings us into relationship with Himself. In one sphere, you die to prove your faithfulness; in another, God’s Son dies on your behalf to share His faithfulness. Will you pray that all followers of Islam will come to know the One True God of the Bible through His Son Jesus Christ who came to die for us sinners and bring us in relationship with Himself?”

As of April 14, 2014, the group’s website contains links to CWA brochures entitled, “Sharia Law: A Threat to America as we Know it,” “Sharia-Compliant Finance Promoted by Treasury Dept.,” and “Sharia Law Trumps U.S. Constitution in Dearborn.” The group’s “Sharia Law and the Constitution” brochure is authored by Nonie Darwish, who has elsewhere asserted that Islam should be “annihilated.”

An article posted on the group’s web site falsely asserts, “this White House avoids traditional Biblical holidays and events but regularly recognizes major Muslim holidays.”
