In 2009, the Islamic Speakers Bureau of Arizona (ISBA) introduced the Abrahamic Panel. This is yet another program in the ISBA family of programs that works towards ISBA’s mission to increase religious literacy and promote mutual respect among people of all different faiths. To increase our outreach efforts, ISBA is recruiting new volunteer panelists from Jewish, Christian and Muslim backgrounds.

At a time when Islamophobia and hate rhetoric against American Muslims has reached unprecedented levels, it is critical that American Muslims clarify common stereotypes, educate about their faith, and seek to define themselves, rather than allowing others define them. With over sixteen years of experience teaching about religions in numerous venues to diverse audiences the Islamic Speakers Bureau of Arizona (ISBA) has both the track record and expertise to do so.

The speaker training workshop is open to all Muslims who are interested in learning how to speak in public about Islam in the context of social science and world history curriculum or cultural diversity programming. Learn what you can do to positively impact the image of Islam and Muslims.

Even if you are not planning to become a certified speaker for ISBA we encourage you to attend this training. It will help you to accurately answer questions in your workplace, in your neighborhood, or any other place and help you have the confidence to clear misconceptions and stereotypes.

You do NOT have to become a speaker when you attend this program, although we would encourage you to join the ISBA.

Certified ISBA speakers are invited to schools and other public and private institutions, and deliver hundreds of onsite presentations to students and adults each year. What you will learn includes:

  • Answers to Frequently Asked Questions About Islam and Muslims
  • Speaking about Religion in the Public Square – Do’s and Don’ts
  • Public Speaking Tips

COST: $40.00 / Attendee
