We need your help to empower our Muslim families, health providers, and researchers to understand the stigmatizing effects of differences of abilities and to promote positive change. We are seeking community volunteers to participate in any or all of the following ways…

Our Dear Community Members:

There are many issues of concern that the Muslim community has yet to address, and the stigma of differences of ability is one of the pressing ones. AMWRRI has created a national survey to understand the experiences and needs of Muslims who have differences of abilities or who are caregivers for individuals with differences of abilities. Our goal is to promote positive change. We need your help in letting people know about the survey, which is now open to Muslims nationwide, and to encourage them to complete it. For our survey, we define differences of ability as any chronic health condition (including physical, intellectual, mental, emotional, or addiction condition) that affects an individual’s ability to do everyday activities related to mobility, communication, work, etc. If you or someone you know has a difference of ability or has a family member with a difference of ability, please complete the survey. 


We need your help to understand how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected U.S. Muslims’ lives and well-being. 

There are many issues of concern that our Muslim communities are addressing, and the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic are one of the pressing ones. The Arab and Muslim Women’s Research and Resource Institute (AMWRRI), in collaboration with faculty and students at Marquette University, have created an interview and an anonymous survey to understand the experiences of U.S. Muslims with regard to the COVID-19 pandemic.
