Event Name - Muslims for American Progress: An Evidenced Based Portrait of American Muslims
Living up to our American ideals requires us to understand our neighbors, our colleagues, and our friends despite our diverse backgrounds.
It is commonly said that we fear what we do not understand. Living up to our American ideals requires us to understand our neighbors, our colleagues, and our friends despite our diverse backgrounds. Yet in recent years, Muslims in America have rarely been portrayed as nuanced and complex human beings, and the reality is most Americans say they do not know a Muslim personally. In an effort to correct this, Institute for Social Policy and Understanding launched the Muslims for American Progress (MAP) project. MAP pairs human stories with hard facts and quantifies the contributions of Muslims in the state of Michigan in eight areas. Ms. Dalia Mogahed, ISPU’s Director of Research, will present the findings from this project.
