In this week’s episode, B.C. and Mordant are joined by Dalia Mogahed, Director of Research at the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding in Washington, D.C., where she strives to understand the issues that impact the American Muslim community.
When it comes to Islamophobia, her goal is to inject reason into an emotionally charged national debate.
“The best way to respond to fear mongering is with facts,” she says.
She shares findings about how radicalization happens, why it’s so important to approach people from a place of compassion, and why there is reason to be optimistic.
“Vibrant, resilient, and creative,” are among the adjectives she uses to describe the American Muslim community.
Tune in to find out more from Dalia, including gems from her TED talk experience and surprising results from a recent study.
