See Something Say Something

Nov 9, 2017

It’s election season in America and Muslims all around the country are turning up to run for public office, from big (Michigan governor) to small (local city council). But even though the candidates are running on local issues like housing rights and minimum wage, the national conversation about Muslims, national security, and terrorism have trickled down into their campaigns. We talk to BuzzFeed News’ own Talal Ansari about his reporting on these candidates with Hannah Allam. We also call up Abdul El-Sayed, who’s running for governor of Michigan, and Zainab Baloch, who recently ran for Raleigh City Council.
