Project Nur Launches “Voices Against Radicalism” Campaign

VAR

October 1, 2014 – Washington, DC

Today, Project Nur officially launched its anti-radicalism campaign, “Voices Against Radicalism.” “Voices Against Radicalism” is a powerful, Project Nur-led campaign aimed at encouraging our members to stand up to radical and extremist behaviors and speech aimed at violating the rights of others. We believe that young people can make a difference. Young people have the ability to change our society and have been involved in the most effective and rapid changes our world has seen.

Project Nur chapters around the country are given the ability to give voices to those most affected by radicalism around the world, such as religions minorities, women, youth and immigrant communities. Through this campaign, PN chapters will provide awareness and education on matters related to the causes of radicalism, victims of radical groups, prevention efforts and case studies discussing groups such as the Islamic State (alternatively known as IS, ISIS, ISIL, and Da’ash), Boko Haram, etc. They will do so by holding events, blogging, writing articles and utilizing social media to spread the message that radical groups violating the rights of others will not be tolerated and is never representative of any religious group.

Follow updates on the campaign via the hashtag #VoicesAgainstRadicalism through social media, as well as our Project Nur Facebook page, Twitter account, and website.

Project Nur is a student-led initiative advocating for social justice by empowering responsible leaders to cultivate an environment of acceptance and mutual respect between Muslims and all communities.
