Date: October 11, 2012

Interfaith Alliance and the Religious Freedom Education Project of the First Amendment Center released today a new resource with answers to frequently asked questions about religious freedom and American Muslims at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.

The new document, What is the Truth about American Muslims? Questions and Answers, is an attempt by the organizations to provide accurate information and delve into the law of religious freedom, the history of American Muslims in the United States, and misunderstood terms and practices, including Shariah.

Sojourners joined twenty-one religious and secular organizations that have endorsed the religious-freedom principles outlined in the new document and support the effort led by Interfaith Alliance and the Religious Freedom Education Project to provide accurate information about American Muslims and Islam.
