American Muslim Identity




From Muslims in America to American Muslims


Similar to the evolution of the American-Catholics and American-Jews, the American-Muslim identity is emerging.

A strong American Muslim community—confident in its identity as both wholly American and wholly Muslim—will inevitably be moderate, and have a moderating effect on the Muslim world globally.

As part of our efforts at developing an American Muslim identity, we have been working to change the discourse in America on Muslims through media appearances, op-eds, etc. Our work has been cited over 50,000 times in the media.
