Meira Negga – Understanding the issues regarding the American Muslim Community
Posted on December 6th
Last week we heard from Meira Neggaz, the Executive Director at the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding, where she is responsible for the institution’s overall leadership, strategy, and growth. Meira gave an interesting talk describing the widespread gaps in knowledge about American Muslims, including their contributions to medicine, science and education. She described current research on how being born in the U.S. affects the American Muslim experience and current issues such as bullying and poverty.
