"My Fellow American:" A New, Creative Attempt at Productive Activism

In an effort to counter Islamophobia, Unity Productions has launched their latest project called “My Fellow American.” With accounts like these, the program provides a storytelling platform for non-Muslims to share stories about their Muslim friends and neighbors.
