The unidentified Muslim who posted one video says he sometimes gets told to go back to his home.

"I would say I am in my homeland," he says. "America is my homeland, and I want America to know that this is my home just as much as anyone else's home."

Rabiah Ahmed says Independence Day was just a natural fit for getting their message out.

"We thought it would be nice for American Muslims to reflect on their American identity and reflect on what their best part of being an American is," says Ahmed.

The group says videos have been pouring in from across the country. They can be found at MyFaithMyVoice.com.
