CAIR-Chicago intern, Becky Fogel, created this audio documentary for Vocalo and Chicago Public Media on the eve of the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks to share perspectives on the media’s role in harboring Islamophobia.  Becky interviewed civil rights activists in the Muslim community and had them share their thoughts on how public perception of Muslims has changed since 9/11.

  1. The media play a HUGE part in reinforcing negative steotypes of Muslims! Education is key here; people need to do their own thinking and research if they want to understand an issue better, or to understand their fellow neighbor better.In other words, don’t be a sheep; a follower. Dare to think progressively. Read. Find out information. Talk to people. Do whatever it takes to be part of the solution and not part of the problem.
