Halal in the Family: Fighting bias, challenging misconceptions
Scroll down for more videos from the event.
Launched today, Halal in the Family is a new satirical web series starring The Daily Show’s Aasif Mandvi and House of Cards’ Sakina Jaffrey. Episodes are available to watch online now.
Raising awareness of the challenges American Muslims confront while living amid growing hostility and bias, Halal in the Family explores online bullying and hate networks, media bias, and the cynical use of anti-Muslim prejudice for political gain—all with a humorous bite.
The Ford Foundation believes that culture and comedy are powerful ways to shift perceptions, and we are proud to support the series. On April 1, we hosted a screening and discussion with Aasif Mandvi, producer Lillian LaSalle, strategist Mik Moore, activist Linda Sarsour, Ford Foundation program officer Eric Ward, and others.
