Since the September 11th attacks, American Muslims have been facing discrimination and abuse, not just from their fellow citizens, but also from the United States Government. Since 9/11, American Muslims have had to deal with harassment from their coworkers and community members, which have even led to violent attacks. They have also been surveilled, illegally detained, withheld from jobs, and even banned from entering their country. The freedom to practice religion freely is a right guaranteed to every American, and at ICNA CSJ, we work to preserve that right by raising awareness and advocating for relevant policies on the state and federal levels.
