In 2018, RTF released our landscape research study, “Reshaping the Country: The Growth of Muslim, Arab and South Asian Communities in the United States,” which examined areas of the country where Muslim, Arab and South Asian communities are growing most quickly around the US but are under-resourced. One of the key metro-regions we came across through this study was in Minnesota. In June 2019, RTF Program Officer Claire Downing conducted a site visit in Minneapolis and St. Paul, MN, meeting with local organizations, allies, and staff of a local elected official. In addition, we partnered with the Minnesota Council on Foundations and four community funders to host a half-day briefing on our Muslim, Arab and South Asian growth and landscape research in the Twin Cities greater metro area on October 17 with more than 40 attendees, enhancing the relationships we had made in this region. Following the event, we surveyed the attendees, 80% of which said they would consider making a grant to one of the groups featured on the two panels we curated.
