Donate today to Make Muslim Voices Louder than ISIS! 

Salam / Peace,

While almost all American Muslim organizations have condemned terrorism, we still hear the question “Why don’t Muslims condemn ISIS?" 

Remember, bad news has turned our neighbors against us. Only 17% Americans say they have a positive opinion of Muslims now. It hits where it hurts the most: 
  • our children are being bullied at school; 
  • and 18-28 year old Muslims are the least employed.

To make American Muslim voice louder than ISIS, Sound Vision has launched an Anti-ISIS campaign, which involves placing "Hey ISIS, You Suck!" billboards in high-traffic locations across the country.

Why Take Anti-ISIS Campaign to Times Square?

Conveying our message in the heart of America is critical.

  • Times Square is where the 9/11 terrorist attack took place in Manhattan, New York
  • Times Square has one of the heaviest foot traffic in the world with 300,000 people every day. ​On the busiest days, the pedestrian count is as high as 480,000.
  • Times Square is the heart of New York, the largest prize city of America, with Wall Street on one side and the United Nations on the other side.
  • Times Square signs don't just get views from tourist traffic in the square itself. They also make tons of incidental appearances on TV shows.
