Good News from the Muslim Community
Welcome to Fresh Air, a Muslim community bulletin that brings you the good news you never seem to hear in the media.
We welcome stories of positive community engagement, humanitarian and voluntary work, responsible reporting and well researched publications, documentaries and other pieces.
We want to inspire you to do more by hearing about others’ example whether they be Muslim or Non-Muslim. We also want to put a smile on your face when you read about people striving to make the world a better place.Finally we are committed to centralising communication within the Muslim community so that you know about the good work of both Muslim and Non-Muslim organisations and can support them spiritually and financially.

Democracy Now - http://www.democracynow.org/ - The reality behind the headlines, Democracy now is a national daily, independent, award winning news programme hosted by Amy Goodman and Juan Gonzalez. Running since 1996, it has long recognised the need for a truly independent voice that is not heard in the now corporate-sponsored US media. Easy to access online videos are available for the British viewer. Recent pieces have included Author and Activist Derrick Jensen on ‘the dominant culture is killing the planet, it’s very important for us to start to build a culture of resistance’ and Dr Gabor Mate on ADHD and the destruction of American childhood. Islamophobia and issues relating to Muslims in America are intelligently and carefully presented and can be accessed from the ‘Muslims in America’ tab on the left of the website.
