THE ICMO OUTREACH COMMITTEE

The outreach committee was formed due to the increased interest and demand of the general public to understand the background of Muslims. As the organization consists of a broad diversity of individuals, it offers a greater understanding to those who come into contact with it.

 

Outreach has worked with: 

  1. Individuals (including ESL classes)

  2. Universities

  3. Public schools

  4. Mental Health professionals & students

  5. Medical Professionals

  6. Media

  7. Faith based organizations

  8. Private organizations

 

Programs such as an annual open house, presentations to a wide range of institutions and organizations, interfaith dialogue, and other outreach activities such as serving guests at the BHS continue on a consistent basis. We strive to bring about education, awareness, understanding, and to give back to our greater community.

QUOTES ABOUT OUR PROGRAMS

"The speaker was incredible. Her openness and thoroughness of presentation, along with her humor, affected all of my students deeply. I have recommended her to other instructors, and I believe she has already spoken in at least one other class. I hope she will come back next semester."  

-University Professor

"The Open House was intelligently and beautifully presented. It was heartening to see the number of people who attended and who learned the truth of the Muslim religion and dispel the negatives which are, unfortunatley, prevalent. I attended in order to better "communicate" when I hear words of ignorance and have a knowledge base to refute them. Thank you." -Guest at the annual open house

"Thank you for your work in creating understanding among people."  -Community Member

"All of the responses to my questions were given with great detail and explanation. I left feeling like I had a new education and understanding of Islam." -Student

 

"Very knowledgeable about the topic. Interesting presentation with a variety of media." -Mental health professional
