The Islamic Human Rights Commission is conducting research on Muslims’ Experiences of Hatred, Hostility and Discrimination in the US, using the Chicagoland area as a case study, by completing a short survey.
The survey is entirely anonymous, and you do not have to give any information that can be used to identify you. It will take about 5 minutes, and your answers will make a significant contribution to pushing for policy changes by providing regular statistics to governments, local authorities and the media that can be used to understand problems faced by Muslims, so please think carefully about your answers. Please also share widely with friends and family – every response is important.
This research is one of the first of its kind in attempting to tackle the under-reporting of anti-Muslim incidents and in trying to assess levels of hostility and discrimination against Muslims (and those perceived to be Muslim) by identifying root causes rather than just singular incidents.
The Islamic Human Rights Commission is a UN accredited NGO. This will be IHRC’s second survey in the US; its findings for California were published in 2013.
