WNYM Productions "No Apologies" Teaser

View a teaser of our latest short video production "No Apologies" HERE!  

 WNYMuslims shot this short video last month in response to the constant negative portrayal of Muslims in the media.  Many students from the University at Buffalo felt it necessary to participate, speaking out on the hateful stereotypes and bias.  A special thanks to all those who volunteered, acted, and helped us create this!  The entire video will be released soon.
