Salt Lake American, formerly Salt Lake American Muslim was established in 2003 as cultural organization to promote goodwill and mutual understanding through a multiethnic performing arts festival.
In 2006 this organization was reorganized to in addition provide refugee survival services such as language interpretation and guidance through the system to refugees who do not know English nor how to navigate the American system.
We began by serving in the Salt Lake County the Iraqi refugee community and then included members of other refugee communities such as the Afghan, Myanmar, Iranian, and the Somali.
We help refugees 24-7 to survive and prosper by overcoming language and acculturation barriers.
This is our labor of love - a cause so compelling that individually we contribute our time and effort most of it as unpaid volunteers.
