About this event
Join us for an in-depth and fascinating look into the Houston Muslim community on January 15th at The Health Museum in Houston’s Museum District.
Earlier this year, Wasat Institute commissioned the second survey of Houston Muslims with New America, a think tank based out of Washington DC. Our partners on this project include the Islamic Society of Greater Houston, Clear Lake Islamic Center, and the Islamic Dawah Center.
Presented by Dr. Robert McKenzie, the senior researcher for this project and a non-resident fellow at New America, you will gain an in-depth analytical understanding of the state of the Houston Muslim community including political attitudes, spiritual committment, socio-economic indicators, giving trends, and a sharper civic profile.
The program will also feature conversations with Dr. Basem Hamid, the founder of Wasat Institute, Dr. Stephen Klineburg from the Kinder Institute, and an in-depth Q&A.
The program will be followed by lunch.
*All tickets directly benefit the release of the study and distribution to the wider Houston community.
Seats are limited to 100 attendees, so please RSVP soon.
