This webinar is part of a media training series by ISPU that aims to both alleviate the pressure on reporters thrust into covering issues related to American Muslims and connect journalists with expert sources and original research on American Muslims. This webinar will also enable reporters to go beyond standard talking points by providing up-to-date, empirical research.

As the only think tank dedicated to sharing and conducting research on issues that affect American Muslims, ISPU has become the go-to resource for journalists looking to expand their knowledge and understanding of this growing, but poorly understood, demographic.


  • Examine up-to-date demographic data on American Muslims, including information on voter engagement and civic engagement
  • Learn guidelines and standards for fair and accurate reporting on American Muslims
  • Gain insight on how to access and use ISPU’s rich database of publications, bibliographies and dictionaries of Arabic and Islamic terms, and other resources that will enrich your reporting


  • Reporters looking for a broad overview and understanding of current issues that affect and concern American Muslims
  • Reporters looking for original, up-to-date, empirical research on American Muslims
  • Reporters who cover intersectional issues, including gender, race and documentation status
