It is not an election season if Muslims and Muslim related topics are not part of the conversation. Every election cycle, either a specific policy proposal or a question to a candidate is centered around Muslims and often negatively. Why would a minority faith community, compromising only 1% of the U.S. population be centered around elections? Join us as we discuss the politics of elections and the impact it has on minority communities. What does American Muslim Civic Engagment look like over the last few years and how is their engagement shaping the political space? Petra Alsoofy, Outreach and Partnership Manager at the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding will present on the topic and answer questions.
