The Washington Field Office is pleased to honor Humera Khan, an advocate for American Muslims, as a recipient of the 2012 Director’s Community Leadership Award.

Ms. Khan is the founder and executive director of Muflehun, a research organization that promotes service-minded communities and justice while peacefully working against injustice. Through the use of research and policy analysis, Muflehun offers recommendations to multiple government agencies about countering homegrown terrorism and violent extremism in American Muslim communities.

Ms. Khan works to raise awareness about violent extremism and encourages dialogue with Muslim communities. She has been invited to speak to audiences nationwide about countering extremism, the role of social media in terrorism, and Internet safety. In 2012, she conducted training to counter violent extremism in Indonesia, Malaysia, Maldives, the Philippines, Sri Lanka, and Singapore, with more locations planned for 2013. Ms. Khan is a member of many organizations, including the Washington Field Office FBI Citizens Academy Alumni Association, where she serves on the board of directors.

In a ceremony at FBI Headquarters, Director Robert S. Mueller, III recognized the recipients of the 2012 Director’s Community Leadership Award. These leaders, selected by their area FBI field office, have demonstrated outstanding contributions to their local communities through service. The FBI is grateful for the work of each of these individuals and organizations on behalf of their communities.

“Whatever the motivation—an unfilled need, a tragic occurrence, a desire to give back—these are people who make things happen and enlist others in their cause,” said Director Mueller. “They are activists who have earned their prestige through good works.”
