PASSOP: #IAmMuslim, An Initiative To Address Islamophobia

Portraits of Muslim women wearing a traditional hijab made from the flag of their native country. We used these images in a poster, print and social media campaign that helped to reframe the global conversation.

Ms Tendai Bhiza at PASSOP:
“Juxtaposing these two symbols creates such a strong impact and challenges the assumptions people have about Muslim identity”

Ryan McManus, Executive Creative Director at NATIVE VML:
“We are fully aware that certain quarters may find these images controversial, but the point of this movement is to challenge the prejudices people may have, and change the way we think about a culture that has been unjustly defined by the actions of a select few”
