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.

We Choose Love Interfaith Service and "Who We are" Exhibit

 

Saturday, May 26th - 6:30 p.m.
Muslim Educational Trust Al-Madinah Hall10330 SW Scholls Ferry Road, Tigard, OR 97223

Join us for an interfaith service to honor those affected by the horrific attack on the MAX train on May 26, 2017. We will also be featuring the Exhibit "Who We Are: A Portrait Exhibit Honoring Muslim Women in Our Community." MET is partnering with the Immigrant Story, to tell the stories of six Muslim women in our community. Collected over the past year, these stories represent voices of healing and those of our community's Muslim women.

The exhibit will feature portraits and stories displayed side by side so that viewers can make a human connection with the subjects. Our hope is that this display will provide an opportunity for visitors to explore the emotions of this particular community, which continues to bear the brunt of hate speech in the United States.
