Video campaign invites American Muslims to share their normalcy

Dozens have filmed and posted clips for My Faith My Voice, telling viewers about their sports teams, hometowns or families. The grassroots effort aims to show that ‘Muslims are like everyone else.’

The videos, which American Muslims are invited to record and upload onto the campaign’s website, mostly follow a script: The speakers introduce themselves, give an “interesting fact” about themselves and then launch into a prewritten message about Islam‘s teachings. They say that Muslims do not want to impose their religion on others and should not be feared.

The grassroots campaign, called My Faith My Voice, grew out of conversations among a number of Muslim professionals about what they felt was a recent rise in anti-Muslim sentiment.
