Media Guide


The Cordoba Foundation and the MCB are pleased to announce the launch of “Working with the Media: A Guide for Local Muslim Groups” at the MCB AGM & Convention 2009 in Birmingham.


The Guide is designed to help individuals and local groups better meet their media and communications needs. It introduces the media, outlines how journalists operate and offers practical advice for spearheading a proactive public relations (PR) strategy. The Guide is written for local Muslim groups and Mosques who are unfamiliar with working and dealing with the media.
