Introduction to IRG

In today’s world, people of all faiths are sensing the need to come together, learn more about each other, and share our commonalities while building understanding across our differences.

At the Islamic Resource Group, we feel the key to understanding is education and dialogue. To this end, we have created a series of customizable presentations designed to educate the public about the religion of Islam and the Muslim community.

Our trained, volunteer speakers make these presentations in a manner that follows the First Amendment principles, while answering questions about this important topic.

IRG speakers represent various professional, ethnic, and linguistic backgrounds, and are certified after a rigorous process of training, testing, and observation by veteran speakers.

Islamic Resource Group (IRG) is a nonprofit/ tax-exempt educational organization, founded in 2001 and based in Saint Anthony, Minnesota.


IRG’s mission is to build bridges of understanding between Minnesota Muslims and the broader Minnesota community  through education.
