Issue Brief: Minority Religion and Violence

Sheinwald, Ellie Sage; Smith, Raymond Arthur

The following issue brief is meant to address the relationship between minority religious groups living in America and violence. This topic will be addressed through an analysis of minority religion groups committing violent acts and minority religion groups facing violence committed by others. The brief will focus on why violent attacks happen by and against minority religion groups, and will cite the Muslim and Jewish populations in America for more specific examples.
