MPAC Launches National Survey of Young Muslims' Attitudes


Washington , DC :   The Muslim Public Affairs Council announced June 27 that it is launching a national survey focusing on civic and political participation among Muslim American youth.
“The media commonly talks about Muslim American youth as a static group, but little research has been done concerning who they are and what they want, particularly with regard to political enfranchisement,” says Haris Tarin, Director of MPAC’s Washington, DC , office. “It’s crucial that we let facts, not fear, guide us forward. Let the data lead the discourse.”

This survey and research project is being spearheaded by MPAC’s Policy and Research Fellow  Hisham Fageeh  who has developed this survey for Muslim Americans aged 18 to 25. The survey is being administered through faculty at Missouri State University in a partnership to enhance the research and effectiveness of this project. Participation in this survey is completely anonymous and voluntary.

MPAC is looking for the widest distribution network possible, and requests that the survey be forwarded widely by its members, supporters and allies.

Founded in 1988, MPAC is an American institution which informs and shapes public opinion and policy by serving as a trusted resource to decision makers in government, media and policy institutions. MPAC is also committed to developing leaders with the purpose of enhancing the political and civic participation of American Muslims.
