ISB's goal for working with the media is to improve how the media reports or writes about issues relating to Islam. Our strategy for achieving this goal is to build long-term relationships between media decision-makers and Muslims, while becoming a trusted source of information about Islam.
ISB conducts educational seminars for media executives and reporters on issues of importance to Muslims and can provide information on pertinent holidays and belief practices of Muslims throughout the year. The seminar can be tailored to last one to two hours. The format is a combination of a presentation by two Muslim speakers and a "question and answer" session.
A typical seminar covers the following topics:
- Who is a Muslim: beliefs and practices
- World wide population
- Demographics and composition of the local Muslim community.
- Typical media coverage relating to Islam, and its impact on Muslims in America
- Editorial guidelines for coverage relating to Islam and Muslims
- Human interest story ideas
- Muslim experts, contacts, and resources - locally and nationally
