Allies

Share this

By publicly and vocally speaking about the American Muslim children and families they know, allies—leaders as well as everyday people who are not American Muslims themselves—have done an enormous amount to promote understanding of American Muslims’ lives.

An ally can show support for American Muslim friends, co-workers, classmates, neighbors, family members and others in a wide variety of ways.

The best way is to take every opportunity to speak publicly and vocally – through letters to editors, Op-Eds, interviews, speeches, etc. – about the lives, contributions, hopes and dreams of American Muslim families and children they know.
