Our Local Muslim Community – The Impact of 9/11

September 3, 2013 - 12:41 pm

9/11 has changed the American landscape in a huge way, and it’s impacted the Muslim American community profoundly.   Negative stereotypes and intolerance of Muslims have emerged since the tragedy, making uncomfortable interactions a common occurrence for our local Muslim families.  Today, we talk about the challenges this community faces and how they’re reaching out to foster conversation and mutual understanding in our region.

Guests:

  • Alam Ali – One of the organizers of the Muslims for Life Blood Drive
  • George Delgado – City of Des Moines Chief of Police
