Who needs quality data on American Muslims? Every journalist. From new members of Congress, to local zoning board approval issues, to stories of bright young sports stars, to tragic incidents of ideologically motivated violence, journalists are constantly being called upon to cover stories related to the American Muslim community. Doing so requires a base level of understanding upon which to make decisions and write effectively. Yet, for some, knowledge of the American Muslim community and the issues that impact it is scarce at best. At worst, knowledge is based on faulty data and logic peddled by some in the Islamophobia industry.

This data presentation by Dalia Mogahed, Director of Research at the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding (ISPU), will help attendees go beyond the soundbite by providing a dive into insightful research and usable information about American Muslims, as well as best practices for reporting. As the only applied research institute dedicated to sharing and conducting research on issues impacting American Muslims, ISPU is committed to amplifying existing research and expertise to a wider audience of journalists to improve their efforts to accurately report on this often-misunderstood community.
