Islamic Media Foundation
Established in 1997, the Islamic Media Foundation (IMF) is a non-profit broadcast media and internet organization with the goals of educating the American public on Islam, increasing understanding between Muslims and non-Muslims in the United States, and promoting interfaith dialogue. In 2001, the foundation created the Islamic Broadcasting Network (IBN), an internet channel featuring family programs, talk shows, and news hosted predominately by young American Muslims. Additionally, the IMF has begun the Islamic Cable Access Network program, which aims to use public access television to further its mission of education and dialogue, as well as the Islamic Media Access Network, a program focused on educating Muslims to become active in the media. The foundation prides itself in considering a wide range of perspectives on issues. The White House has requested the IMF's coverage of several events, and the organization has been represented in several State Department delegations.
