This book seeks to tell the life stories of the innocent men and women who have been needlessly swept up in the "war on terror." As we approach the ten-year anniversary of 9/11, this collection of narratives gives voice to the people who have had their human rights violated here in the U.S. by post-9/11 policies and actions. Among the narrators:

  • Young men of Arab, Muslim, South Asian, and Middle Eastern descent, who were arrested and detained or singled out for voluntary interviews because of their national origin or religion.
  • Scholars who have been blacklisted or subjected to interrogation for their research or writings on Islam and related topics.
  • Muslim women who have suffered from job discrimination, harassment, and assault for wearing a veil or similar head covering.

In their own words, the narrators of Patriot Acts recount their lives before the 9/11 attacks and their experiences of the backlash that have deeply altered their lives and communities.
