Riz Ahmed is helping to pave the way for more Muslim representation in film. The Academy Award-nominated actor is helping to spearhead a new initiative for Muslim representation in media, in partnership with the USC Annenberg Inclusion Initiative, the Ford Foundation and Pillars Fund.

A new report powered by USC Annenberg’s new study on Muslim representation in media, found that less than 10 percent of top grossing films from 2017-2019 had a Muslim character on screen, noting that Muslim characters were erased in popular movies, that portrayals lack intersectional inclusion, and that Muslims still face stereotyping on screen.
