Average Mohamed: Combating Violent Extremism One Cartoon At a Time

Join us in learning how one Muslim man in Minnesota has made it his personal mission to undermine ISIS.

He's the creator and voice of a cartoon character he calls Average Mohamed, and for nearly 10 years Ahmed has been producing these online cartoons to try to counter the ISIS message. The cartoon aims to give talking points to parents, clergy members and kids to combat the message of violent extremists and offer hope and acceptance in its place. Join Average Mohamed in a discussion about love for country, culture, and democracy.
