The Muslim Educational Trust (MET) of Portland, OR., was founded in 1993 in response to the
community's needs in the Portland area. These needs for education about Islam were generated by the
Muslim community as well as the Non-Muslim community.

MET's mission is to enrich the public's understanding of Islam and dispel common myths and
stereotypes, while serving the Muslim community's educational, social and spiritual needs in order to
develop generations of proud and committed Muslims who will lead our community to the forefront of
bridge-building dialogue, faith-based community service and stewardship of Earth and humanity.
