The Everyday Muslim social media code of conduct

Our social media presence is focused on helping people find out more about, discuss and engage with the Everyday Muslim heritage and archive collections, but also with public archive and heritage collections and research. It is intended to encourage cross-cultural understanding, storytelling and inclusive, lively debate. The views expressed by our users and followers are their own and may not represent the views of Everyday Muslim, its Trustees, employees, or affiliates.

We love hearing from you and, to ensure that everyone has a positive experience, here are a few house rules for being part of our online community:
