Local Mental Health After The San Bernardino Terror Attack, Part 5: Local Muslims Respond


Following the attack on San Bernardino, a mosque in the Coachella Valley was firebombed.  The act of ISIS-inspired terror in the Inland Empire - coming just weeks after a music hall in Paris was targeted - only fanned the flames of Islamophobia.  The hate crime in Indio demonstrated the fear and broad mistrust of an entire population in spite of the fact that the overwhelming majority of Muslims are peaceful seekers of the American Dream.  To conclude our series on mental health in the wake of the San Bernardino attack, KVCR's Matt Guilhem looks at how area Muslims process the scrutiny they receive.

This series of stories was produced by Matt Guilhem as a project for the California Health Journalism Fellowship, a program of the Center for Health Journalism at the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism.
