My Fellow American

My Fellow American is an online film and social media project seeking to change the perception of muslims in America. Despite many muslims in the states being born there and practicing their religion peacefully, they're still villified and portrayed as the "other." The project calls for people from diverse backgrounds to pledge their support and share positive stories about muslim people they've interacted with. Through the power of social media, My Fellow American aims to rectify the depiction of muslims within the American fabric. Above is a video of entrepreneur extraordinaire Russell Simmons pledging his support. If you'd like to share a story and find out more about the project, visit the website for details.
