Opinion | We Want to Hear From Muslim Americans Who Grew Up in the Shadow of Sept. 11

Ask millennial Americans what they remember about the Sept. 11 attacks and many might tell you where they were when the planes hit. Some might recount the American flags that went up in their neighborhoods afterward or the discussions they had in school in the weeks that followed.

Millennial Muslim Americans could tell you about those things, too — but they might also tell you about being interrogated by school principals and the police or being routinely stopped at the airport, even as teenagers.

We want to hear from Muslim Americans who came of age in the wake of Sept. 11. We’re looking to understand more about how navigating the aftermath of the attacks affected their identities and whether that experience changed their relationships with their faith and with America.

Muslim Americans ages 28 to 38, tell us about your experience on and after Sept. 11, 2001

We may publish a selection of your responses in an upcoming article.
