About Ali T Muhammad
"Never allow anyone or anything to impede your progression in life!"
Ali T. Muhammad's commitment to public service began at the age of fourteen when he worked as a camp counselor. While continuing to serve youth throughout his teens, he knew that he had found his calling. His father, Imam Dr. Salahuddin M. Muhammad, always demonstrated that to serve humanity is to choose a life of honor. As Ali entered early adulthood, he joined Beacon's Pop Warner Football Organization and took his turn coaching and mentoring young athletes. This really burgeoned his passion for positively impacting peoples' lives. His modus operandi has been that "Even a smile is charity". With this smile, he holds steadfast to a spirit of giving that asks for nothing in return. With humility, Ali does not claim to have all the answers but instead, values the notion that people must work together to solve issues facing our society today. He believes that it is everyone's responsibility to collaborate; to originate solutions in order for our youth to lead prosperous and conscientious lives.
Ali T Muhammad is a U.S. Citizen living in Beacon, NY. He works within his city advocating for community development through civic engagement and volunteering. On January 1st, 2014, he was elected to his first position in public office as a Beacon City Councilman.
Ali's innovative campaigns like Beacon Re:Creation, Music Justice For All and Karma Kickback have given participating individuals the opportunity to access resources for strengthening their creative identities. These initiatives led to the development of social justice campaigns like Unity in The Community, The Terrence Wright Memorial Basketball League, and The #BeTheChange Campaign; all of which empower community members to get involved.
The 1000 Volunteers is an initiative designed to gather contact information for anyone willing to volunteer their valuable time. We encourage organizations in need of volunteers to join this project.
My neighbors, friends, constituents, the increased disorderly conduct and violence our community, our city, our Main Street, our people have been receiving is something that we can’t look past or kick down the road. We have many great opportunities here and deserve to have our safety maintained and if needed, improved. My quick two cents to be more proactive individually: If you’re out about town remember nothing really positive happens outside after 12am, enjoy your night and get home safely. Keep your doors to your cars, homes and businesses locked when necessary. It’s holiday season and you may be receiving or giving lots of gifts, take your time to dispose of your boxes properly so you aren’t viewed as a target for crime.
Our police department and city government are doing their best although any positive participation from us, the members of our collective community will only assist in creating the utopia we al believe Beacon can be.
I'm thankful for my birthright of freedom and grateful to those who have fought to and continue to fight to preserve it. One way I can demonstrate my gratitude is by voting in every possible election and being informed on the issues that matter to me most. Another is being engaged in order to exact the change I desire to see in myself and the society I'm living in.

Unhappy with last night’s election results? Tired of low voter turnouts? Want to make people over politics the determining factor in choosing candidates for office?
You have to make the choice to participate more in our government. We have to be more involved in our communities at large. Politics aren’t only about compromise, more importantly the influence of others is about caring and compromise. Understanding from where we come and what we want as individuals. There is a local Beacon democratic committee meeting this Saturday November 11th @ 9:30AM and every Second Saturday located at the BeaHive, 291 Main Street. Our local GOP have monthly meetings also.
Join in on the meetings, listen clearly, take notes and observe. Contribute when you can. The biggest mistake I️ made was resigning from the local democratic committee and removing myself from the table... “If you’re not at the table then you’re on the menu”. If this election proved anything it showed that we can’t run for office, plan, organize, and mobilize by ourselves. The work it takes to build a better Beacon begins today.
“If something needs fixing, then lace up your shoes and do some organizing,” the President implored. “If you’re disappointed by your elected officials, grab a clip board, get some signatures, and run for office yourself.” -President Obama
