The Nazda Alam Foundation (NAF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Massachusetts.

Our mission is to support Muslim women’s participation locally and globally in social and political processes.

As a new organization, we have held voter information and registration events, informational sessions for Muslim communities, sessions on immigration and legal status issues and fostered maximal involvement in local elections and the 2020 federal census.

Nazda Alam, MSW, Cheif Executive Officer, has been a leader in local, state, and national efforts to promote immigrant voter registration and participation in elections. As a minority woman leader in Massachusetts, Nazda has also maintained a strong connection with the Bangladeshi homeland, supporting female education from primary school through junior college levels.
