You Have Made a Real Difference!

Over the past two years, you helped journalists and other media professionals cover Muslims confidently, creatively, and accurately through your support to ISPU’s Helping Journalists Cover American Muslims Fairly project. In so doing, you added expert voices to stories that reported sensitively on religious-based bullying in schools, you informed much needed conversations about ideologically motivated violence in the wake of Christchurch, you helped diversify voices in the media and so much more. In short, by equipping journalists with rigorous research and expert scholar sources, you turned facts into fuel for positive change.

One journalist based on the West Coast who used ISPU data in a recent article told us, “While covering bullying of Muslim children in the San Francisco Bay Area, it was very helpful to have the results of a nationwide survey like ISPU’s to refer to, as well as to speak with Dr. [Nadia] Ansary to talk about what those numbers mean and how schools can do more to tackle the issue. It seems that there’s not a lot of data available on the bullying of Muslim children, in particular, across the country, and other sources I reached out to also referred me to the ISPU survey as a good source of information on the issue.” Because of your investment in ISPU, we can work directly with journalists like this one, who uses both our data and our expert scholars in their work. 

While we will continue to engage and provide workshops for journalists, we are removing the project from GlobalGiving to make room for other ISPU projects. But the workshops you made possible will live on and continue to make positive change for many years through the excellent work of the journalists we served. In 2018, 1 billion readers saw a news article referencing ISPU’s research. That is 1 billion more accurately informed readers! Readers who vote. Readers to interact with Muslims as their colleagues, friends, and neighbors. Readers who can make a difference in the world.

I hope that you will stay engaged with ISPU and there are many ways to do that. First, keep a look out for future ISPU projects shared on Global Giving. Second, follow this and other work by signing up for updates at www.ispu.org. Or, follow us on Facebook or Twitter. Last, turn more facts into fuel by sharing our Journalist Toolkit with a reporter or editor in your network. 

We sincerely thank you for being our partners, friends, and supporters!
