American Muslim Poll 2022: Civic Engagement & Obstacles to Voting

13 Oct 2022


Announced by the University of Pittsburgh:

Join us on October 13 to learn what has changed in American Muslim political engagment, what challenges Muslim voters face while exercising their rights, and what other ways Muslims are civically and politically engaged.

The only study of its kind, ISPU’s American Muslim Poll explores the views and experiences of Americans of faith and no faith on a wide range of topics. ISPU last fielded the American Muslim Poll in spring 2020, during the last year of the Trump administration. With President Biden’s administration now in office over a year, and with rapidly approach midterms, this year we sought to learn what, if anything, has changed in terms of American Muslim civic engagement. We polled American Muslims, as well as Americans of other faith and non-faith groups, about their experiences with possible obstacles to voting, along with their views on a number of hot-button issues of importance to voters.

Panel of Experts:
- Edward Ahmed Mitchell – Deputy Director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR)
- Mohamed Gula, National Organizing Director & Executive Director of Emgage’s Virginia Chapter
- Ishraq Ali, Organizing Director at MPOWER Change
- Dr. Dilara Sayeed, President at the Muslim Civic Coalition
- Dalia Mogahed, Director of Research at ISPU

To further our goal of ensuring we're reaching as many people as possible in 2022, ISPU is collecting additional demographic information on event attendees. This information is optional to provide, and will be available only to ISPU staff. Thank you for helping us learn!
