It all began with a tweet.

It started with a tweet and brunch in Adams Morgan. After Imam Suhaib Webb moved to DC in 2015, three young organizers - Lauren Schreiber, Maggie Saddiqi, and Aqsa Mahmood - reached out to help plan programing to meet the unique needs of young people living in the district’s borders.

Who We Are

Through an interactive community experience, Center DC facilitates and provides spiritual and self-development content that can be applied to everyday life. We work to inspire connections and learning through our various programing by providing platforms for people to speak, be heard, and listened to.

Check Out Our Values

What We Believe

We believe self-discovery happens when we build community with others and are willing to invest ourselves in the work that comes with it. We value meaningful relationships and see the act of coming together as an opportunity to align ourselves with the Islamic tradition of developing prophetic character.
