ISPU is excited to attend the 10th Annual Muslim Mental Health Conference. We are hosting a session focused on the findings from our 2017 American Muslim Poll and bringing our traveling Muslims for American Progress (MAP) exhibit.
American Muslim Poll 2017: Muslims at the Crossroads
American Muslim Poll 2017: Muslims at the Crossroads offers a timely and groundbreaking look into the American Muslim community. From early on in a deeply divisive presidential election cycle until today, American Muslims have been at the center of heated social and political debates. One byproduct of this increased salience is an uptick in negatively charged rhetoric and discriminatory acts. Conversely, there has also been an outpouring of support and solidarity (particularly following the election of Donald Trump) aimed not just at Muslims already in the United States, but also toward those who yearn to make America their home. Common across all of these discourses, actions, and reactions, however, is the frequent relegation of Muslims to subjects of consideration. Rarely are Muslims active participants in political dialogue, and even rarer are their attitudes and behaviors systematically examined. American Muslim Poll 2017: Muslims at the Crossroads helps narrow this wide knowledge gap.
