I Speak for Myself ®

I Speak for Myself ® is an inclusive platform through which people can make themselves heard and where everyone’s voice has a place. ISFM®’s mission focuses on delivering one core product, a “narrative collection,” that is mindset-altering, inspiring, relatable, and teachable. We aim to deliver interfaith, intercultural titles that are narrow in scope but rich in diversity.

Volume 1 of the ISFM series, “I Speak for Myself: American Women on Being Muslim,” was released in May 2011 and was named #2 on HuffPo’s list, Best Religion Books of 2011. Volume 2, “All-American: 45 American Men on Being Muslim” was released in June 2012 and immediately received a coveted Starred Review from Publisher’s Weekly. Volumes 6 and 7 were released in 2015 and joined the series in sparking dialogue across the country and abroad as well.
