Co-sponsors of the event include Unity Production Foundation, Paulist Fathers, AMIN DC, Faith Act Fellows and Trinity Presbyterian Church.
Inside Islam: What a Billion Muslims Really Think, the new documentary by Unity Production Foundation, provides an eye-opening view of global Muslim opinions on hot topics like terrorism, democracy, women and the West based on the findings of the Gallup Organization’s first-of-its-kind opinion poll of the entire Muslim world.
Like Gallup’s research, the film challenges some popular notions concerning the conflicts that exist between the U.S. and the Muslim World. It provides information and analysis intended to spur a public policy debate based on facts – not fear. This ground-breaking research is crucial to the new foreign policy formulations now being made in Washington and around the world.
Experts featured in the film include: Dalia Mogahed, executive director of the Gallup Center for Muslim Studies and a member of President Obama’s Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships; John Esposito, University Professor at Georgetown University; and Kenneth Pollack, Director of Research at the Saban Center for Middle East Policy at the Brookings Institution.
CAIR is America’s largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization. Its mission is to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.
