Welcome to the Muslim Educational Trust - MET


 

The Muslim Educational Trust 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.

Muslim Educational Trust is dedicated to the betterment of our society, and strives to achieve its purpose through education, cooperation, networking, and programs which benefit Muslims and non-Muslims in the greater Portland, Oregon.

Jack Levin is the Brudnick Professor of Sociology and Criminology and co-director of the Center on Violence and Conflict at Northeastern University in Boston. Professor Levin's work on hate crimes, mass murder, serial killers, and prejudice has made him one of the most widely recognized and quoted sociologists in the public sector. For over 25 years, Professor Levin has used the sociological perspective to contextualize sensational media stories, dispel myths, influence public policy and change how people think about violence and hate crimes.
