Targets of Suspicion: The Impact of Post-9/11 Policies on Muslims, Arabs and South Asians in the US

May 1, 2004

In response to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, the U.S. government began a campaign of aggressive immigration enforcement targeted at Muslims, Arabs and South Asians. Rather than first seeking to identify suspected terrorists, the government initiated harsh law enforcement actions against whole communities with the hope that some of those caught might be terrorist suspects.

9/11 Relief and Regranting Funds

December 1, 2003

This report provides an overview of the activities and beneficiaries of the funds and agencies involved in 9/11-related disaster relief and recovery, drawn from data compiled by the Foundation Center through September 2003. Reflecting differences in sources of information, the report offers two distinct and complementary views of the funds:Part I discusses findings from our 2003 survey of large and small relief funds and agencies. The survey provides a broad perspective on the activities and practices of 9/11-related charities and considers the impact of size and sponsor type on patterns of assistance, sources of support, and timetables for distributing aid. More importantly, it sheds light on some of the planning and operational constraints involved in the delivery of disaster relief and the creative responses and collaborative efforts required to overcome these difficulties and achieve results.Part II documents total contributions raised and distributed by 40 of the largest 9/11 relief and regranting funds. The analysis tracks the purposes and beneficiaries of nearly $2.2 billion distributed by these charities for relief and recovery efforts through September 2003, and projects distribution patterns for unspent funds.
