We are stronger when we stand together as Americans and weaker when we let fear and lack of understanding divide us. Our Rights and Inclusion team works with Muslim, Arab, Sikh, and South Asian American communities and leaders across the country, with allies opposing hate-crimes and anti-Muslim prejudice,and with U.S.-based Muslim and non-Muslim allies promoting cultural equity and inclusion in the arts.
In 2017, with the support of our partners, ReThink Media launched a Speakers Bureau, a multi-year effort to address the lack of representation of Muslim, Arab, and South Asian American spokespeople in the media. To-date we have trained hundreds of community members and leaders across the country with expertise on a broad range of issues beyond just Islam, Muslims, or nations of origin in subjects as varied as the arts, national security, healthcare, domestic violence, and pop culture. And we have provided hands-on media outreach support to connect this growing network of spokespeople to journalists, producers, and bookers across the country.
