Inspired by the “Ground Zero Mosque” controversy in New York City, and developed, in part, via live and online conversations and community events, MOSQUE ALERT tells the story of three fictional families living in Naperville, Illinois, whose lives are interrupted by a proposed Islamic Center on the site of a beloved local landmark. MOSQUE ALERT explores the intersections of zoning, civil rights, and Islamophobia, with humor, family drama, and raw honesty.
