Help Us Challeng Islamophobia by Providing a Platform for American Muslims to Tell their Stories


Changing the Perception of Muslims in America One Social Media Post at a Time

#TheMuslimNextDoor is all about American Muslims telling the stories of who they are by sharing a unique aspect of their life. We're telling our stories by highlighting things we care about - everything from sports to state pride to our careers.

Why #TheMuslimNextDoor

A few months ago, CAIR Oklahoma was approached with the idea of putting together a campaign to allow opportunities for American Muslims to tell their stories with a focus on what makes them uniquely American and uniquely Muslim. This is the first effort of its kind in Oklahoma that hopes to set a precedent for a comprehensive PR campaign for American Muslims, which can be adopted by states throughout the country.

The impact you will have as an investor is priceless. This campaign will change the perception of Muslims in America one social media post, youtube share, billboard, and forum at a time.

The Campaign

#TheMuslimNextDoor will consist of the following:

  • Photo shoots with Muslim communities throughout Oklahoma to create a library of images of American Muslims being American Muslims.
  • Development of a dedicated web page that will have the images, stories, and videos of the Muslims behind #TheMuslimNextDoor campaign
  • Production of 10 - 12 videos that will be created specifically for social media and sharing that will tell the stories of the Muslims in the photo campaign.
  • Billboards showcasing #TheMuslimNextDoor photos to be strategically placed throughout Oklahoma.
  • Get to know #TheMuslimNextDoor public forums where people can meet Muslims that are their neighbors.
