StoryCorps seeks Muslim voices over July 4th weekend

The StoryCorps listening project is partnering with My Faith My Voice, a platform dedicated to promoting the grassroots voice of Muslims in America, to record stories on July 4 weekend in Chicago. "The partnership will seek to humanize the American Muslim community and reflect the growing diversity of our country's national landscape," a statement said.

"Storytelling is a powerful way to break down barriers and strengthen connections between people," Haaris Ahmad, an MFMV Board Member, said in the statement. "It's time for the Muslim community to add its stories to the rich diversity and tradition of the rest of the American family."
