Laws protect us but they don’t change hearts and minds. Only stories can do that.
— Sue Obeidi

MPAC’s Hollywood Bureau consists of a multicultural, multiethnic team of executives, screenwriters, producers, editors, and experts on Islamic history, religious traditions, and cultural customs. 

Led by its Director Sue Obeidi, we address a diverse array of storylines and characters, ensuring nuanced, authentic characters and storylines involving Islam and Muslims.
