The Ummah Project Foundation was established with the mission of documenting the stories of Muslims. We listen to the personal stories shared by Muslims from all corners of the world. In capturing these stories, we also hear about the pain and injustices experienced by Muslims, including discrimination and other human rights violations. While our focus is on Islamophobia, we emphasize discrimination in all forms, regardless of the reason for it.Our lawyers work in a unique collaboration with filmmakers, documentary makers, and photographers to document and combat Islamophobia and xenophobia through the power of the written word and the camera. Filmmakers, documentary makers, and photographers capture the stories and processes, which are then published on our website.
The complaints that the foundation handles are completely free for everyone.
Our lawyers work tirelessly to report on alleged violations of fundamental human rights, such as the principle of equality, the prohibition of discrimination, and the freedom of religion. Complaints are initially filed with those who are suspected of violating these rights, and ultimately, if necessary, with the UN Human Rights Council, UN Human Rights Committee, or the European Court of Human Rights after exhausting national remedies.Reward System
