This chapter examines the nature and meaning of interfaith activism for American Muslims. It discusses the kind of misconceptions that exclude Muslims and deny Islam a place in the American religious landscape; how Muslim activists reconstruct Islam as an American religion through interfaith dialogue; and Muslim involvement in Detroit's local interfaith scene. The final section presents a rethinking of interfaith work as a citizenship practice.
