Hello! I set up Average Mohamed to talk plainly to humanity – to all of you. Issues of race, religion, and “fitting in” affect all of us, especially our youth, so it’s time we talk about them.
Average Mohamed is a counter ideology organization dedicated to stoping extremism and hate. Creating narratives that engage youth aged 8-25 year old globally promoting values of Peace, Islam is peace, Democracy in rights, freedoms and liberties, and Anti-Extremism. We counter hate, be it Antisemitism, Homophobia, Islamophobia, Racism or Antichristianism. Creating narrative in dialogue, using social media online outreach and offline outreach to engage youths globally.
The solution to so many of these issues is simple: dialogue. Too often, silence leads to misunderstanding and extreme views. I waited for a straightforward, logical program that would help youth to understand their unique contribution to society, and appreciate others with different ethnicities, races, and belief systems. While waiting, and waiting, and waiting, it dawned on him that an average guy can spark these dialogues.
If it is an average guy who espouses hate, intolerance, and extremism; all of us average folks need to speak up and challenge this narrative. Our goal is to give average parents, kids and clergy talking points to counter falsehood propagated by violent extremists, racists and others who promote intolerance. We hope to share love of country, culture, and democracy with children across the world. We need your help to do so.
