Your Call: What does it mean to grow up muslim in the US?
On today's Your Call we’ll talk to young Muslims about how they integrate their religious practices and beliefs within modern American culture. There are nearly a quarter million Muslims in the Bay Area and half of them under 35. So what is it like for these young people to grapple with gender issues, stereotyping, and the social pressures of growing up with feet in two worlds? How much does your religious identity shape how you interact with the world? Join the conversation on the next Your Call with Hana Baba and You.
