Seattle Islamic Speakers Bureau (SISB) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to counter stereotypes, prejudice and discrimination against American Muslims by teaching about their traditions and contributions while abiding by First Amendment Guidelines. SISB hopes to accomplish this goal through education, building relationships with community organizations and personalized face-to-face interaction with community members. We reach our audience through presentations, diversity seminars and participating on panel discussions at schools, colleges anduniversities, law enforcement agencies, corporations and healthcare facilities.
SISB is an affiliate organization of ING which was founded in 1993. SISB, together with ING and it’s affiliates across the country, have educated tens of thousands of people to eliminate stereotypes, prejudice and discrimination against American Muslims through our education.
