Sharia revoiced word cloud graphic

During our interviews with more than 100 California Muslims, we asked what words come to mind when they think of shari'a. Word cloud design by Nadeen AbuHasan.

Our team commissioned distinguished poet Mark Gonzales and Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Justin Mashouf to create a video installation interpreting shari'a, using some of the words and stories shared with us during our interview process.
