“No Apology,” a short film produced by WNY Muslims to combat what the organization believes is stereotyping of Islam by the media, will have its public premiere at 6 p.m. Aug. 29 in the Student Union, Room 330, on the University at Buffalo’s North Campus.

In the film, Muslims condemn the media “for making it a matter of religion when it comes to acts committed by a Muslim, but a matter of mental disease when it comes to an act committed by a non-Muslim.” The speakers accuse the media of “focusing on religion and ethnicity rather than a crime alone.”

A trailer for the film is available at www.wnymuslims.org. The organization hopes the film will raise awareness about inaccurate portrayals of Islam. To RSVP for the screening, call 923-4386 or email wnym@wnymuslims.org.
