Muslims as the Scapegoat: The Impact of Public Islamophobia

Sunday, December 30, 10-11 a.m.

From Muslim bans to airport protests, Muslims continue to find themselves at the center of public conversations. What does the average American really think about Muslims? And how supportive are they of restrictive policies against Muslim communities? What impact does this have on American Muslims’ lived experiences? ISPU’s third annual American Muslim Poll answers these questions and more. Join ISPU Director of Research Dalia MogahedNihad Awad, and Linda Sarsour as they discuss these findings.

Pride and Prejudice: The Impact of Internalized Bigotry

Sunday, December 30, 11:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m.

The media coverage and political rhetoric surrounding Muslims in America is overwelmingly negative. How have American Muslims internalized these messages? Is having pride in our faith enough to protect us from the barrage of negativity and stereotypes? Join ISPU Director of Research Dalia MogahedKameelah M. Rashad, and Ieasha Prime as they discuss the impact of internalized bigotry and what ISPU’s third annual American Muslim Poll can tell us about it.

Equal Treatment? Measuring the Legal and Media Responses to Ideologically Motivated Violence in the U.S.

Sunday, December 30, 1:45–2:45 p.m.

Hate crime or terrorism? Lone wolf or extremist? These words are often used to describe ideologically motivated violence in the U.S., and their use by officers of the law and members of the media has impact on real cases. ISPU’s new Equal Treatment? report compares media coverage and legal treatment when the perpetrator of an act of ideologically motivated violence is perceived to be Muslim vs. not perceived to be Muslim. Join ISPU Director of Research Dalia MogahedEsam Omeish, and Rummana Hussain as they discuss what this data means for Muslims in America.
