Muslims in America: Dynamics of Inclusion and Exclusion
April 16 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
The Muslim experience in the United States encompasses both exclusion and inclusion. According to a Pew survey, half of American Muslims have experienced some form of religious discrimination including 6% who have been physically threatened or attacked. In spite of this, 80% of Muslims expressed satisfaction with their life; 90% are proud to be an American; and 70% say it is possible to work hard and get ahead in America. In sum, Muslims have experienced tremendous discrimination, yet many have found a place–however tenuous–in American society. With a range of experiences, our panelists will explore the dynamics of inclusion and exclusion in the lives of Muslims in the United States.
