TAKE CONTROL OF THE CONVERSATION AND TELL YOUR STORY
Like you I've had enough of their hate. But rather than complain, defend or react, I'm a choosing to share my story. I just answered the call of our partner organization MyFaithMyVoice.com to upload a short video telling America why I choose to be engaged. Collectively our stories will help create a positive and realistic narrative of who we are.
To make an impact we have to upload and share hundreds of voices, do your part today by sharing your story. Please read the below email from My Faith My Voice and follow the instructions to share your story.
These are not our stories.
What are we doing about that?
Now it's YOUR TURN...
What is YOUR STORY?
Where is YOUR VOICE?

"...It is people who are in mainstream Islam, leaders of mosques, leaders of Muslim organizations who do not come forward and denounce, officially denounce, officially cooperate with the police against those extremists and terrorists."
- Rep. Peter King (R-NY)
Assallamu alaikum (peace be unto you),
Countering false allegations and voices of hate against Islam and Muslims can be challenging, especially when you feel like your voice will not be heard...but with My Faith My Voice, that is no longer the case.
My Faith My Voice is an online platform that aims to challenge misconceptions about Islam by providing everyday Muslims the opportunity to have their stories heard by millions of Americans.
What is your story? We'd like to hear from you!
How do you serve your community?
What role does the mosque play in your life?
Upload your 30-45 second video message at www.MyFaithMyVoice.com answering one of these two questions and our team of specialists will then work with the media to get your perspectives covered in the news. We were extremely successful with our response to the Park 51 controversy last August. See: Results
The more voices we generate, the more of an impact we will make. The absence of our voices will only allow others to effectively define who we are and what we stand for.
