dc.description.abstract American Muslim organizations face the challenge of representing their diverse constituency and effectively engaging with the public and policymakers. How do organizations present themselves publicly? This study endeavors to address this query and illuminate what exogenous (government policy, public opinion, and world events) and endogenous (experience and funding) factors influence the projected identity (platforms and tactics) by analyzing press releases and other publications of three prominent national American Muslim organizations between 1999 and 2013. A series of regression models finds support for socialization theories. Additionally, the organizations responded more frequently to negative policies or violent incidents, confirming a disturbance hypothesis.
