Banking while Muslim

Deep Dives with ISPU

Jun 22 2023 • 29 mins

In recent years, Muslim individuals, businesses, and nonprofits have reported facing potentially discriminatory practices at some of the nation’s largest banks. As part of our American Muslim Poll 2022, we published an analysis on the experiences of Banking While Muslim. In this episode of Deep Dives with ISPU, ISPU Executive Director Meira Neggaz interviews Banking While Muslim author Dr. Youssef Chouhoud and Chris Blauvelt, CEO and founder of LaunchGood, to discuss these experiences and findings.

Youssef Chouhoud is an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Christopher Newport University, where he is affiliated with the Reiff Center for Human Rights and Conflict Resolution. Prior to joining CNU, Dr. Chouhoud was a Provost’s Fellow at the University of Southern California, where he received his Ph.D. Youssef’s work has been published in the journal Politics and Religion, the Oxford Handbook of Polling and Survey Methods, and, most recently, the British Journal of Political Science.

Chris Blauvelt is a passionate Muslim American entrepreneur committed to building up the global Muslim community to reach its full potential. Chris is the CEO & founder of LaunchGood.com, the world's largest faith-inspired crowdfunding platform and in 10 years LaunchGood has raised over $370 million across 153 countries from 1+ million donors. LaunchGood has captured global attention through its bridge-building crowdfunding campaigns that spurred Muslims to rebuild Black churches, repair desecrated Jewish cemeteries, and support families of the New Zealand mosque attacks.
