What makes Greater Lafayette great? Join the Muslim Neighbors Initiative and share your love for our community. Get your photo taken and be a part of this growing movement! Getting to Know Our Muslim Neighbors collects and shares stories of Muslim American experience through photography and narrative. This project began in Lafayette, Indiana as part of a larger outreach initiative in which a group of Purdue graduate students began giving presentations at local churches about their experiences as Muslim Americans with the goal of create a safe space to ask questions and create a network of support. It is our belief that getting to know our Muslim neighbors is the first step in dismantling the new wave of Islamophobia present in our country.
