A History of Muslims in Macomb County

$25,000 • Macomb

This project tells the story of a growing but largely under-reported Muslim community that has been living, working, and going to school in Macomb County—a rapidly changing suburban Detroit community. The primary narrative for telling this story involved the sharing of IONA’s story establishing the first mosque in the City of Warren, facing substantial opposition from government and the public; their rapid growth both in numbers and property; tremendous involvement and leadership in interfaith- and community-based efforts; and the continued prejudice and discrimination that they work daily to overcome.

Check back soon for more details about this project.
