Muslim Youth Voices Films

MUSLIM YOUTH VOICES presents stories that convey the richness and diversity of Muslim Americans. Over the course of three summers in six cities across the country, Muslim youth were given the essential tools to tell their own stories on their own terms. The workshops resulted in short films, amplifying these young people’s voices, and illuminating the many identities and experiences of youth and Muslim life in America.
