Introduction to Islamic Resource Group
In today’s world, people of all faiths are sensing the need to come together, learn more about each other, and share our commonalities while understanding our differences.
At the Islamic Resource Group, we feel the key to understanding is education and dialogue. To this end, we have created a series of customizable presentations designed to educate the public about the religion of Islam and its 1.5 billion adherents.
Our trained volunteer speakers make these presentations in a manner that follows the First Amendment freedoms, while answering questions about this important topic.
IRG speakers represent various professional, ethnic, and linguistic backgrounds, and are certified after a rigorous process of training, testing, and observation by veteran speakers.
Islamic Resource Group (IRG) is a nonprofit/ tax-exempt educational organization, founded in 2001 and based in Saint Anthony, Minnesota.
IRG’s mission is to build bridges of understanding between Minnesota Muslims and the broader Minnesota community through education.
