Key Findings: An Impact Report of Muslim Contributions to New York City
This is a summary of the key findings of An Impact Report of Muslim Contributions to New York City.
To fill the widespread gaps in knowledge about American Muslim citizens, including their positive effect on the country, the Muslims for American Progress (MAP) project quantified the contributions of American Muslims in New York City. We did so by analyzing contributions across eight key areas: medicine; science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM); civics and democracy; philanthropy and nonprofit; education; economics; arts and entertainment; and sports. Our researchers quantified American Muslim contributions by combining hard facts with human faces. We achieved this goal by profiling individuals and organizations of distinction that showcase the community's diversity and reveal important and oftentimes overlooked contributions by Muslims to the city. New York City's Muslim community serves as a case study for the rest of the nation, and the findings from this project are in many ways indicative of Muslim contributions across the United States.
This study is a continuation of our initial project, the 2017 MAP Michigan Report. In both, we explore the dynamic ways in which Muslims contribute to wider American society.
