International Association of Sufism
The International Association of Sufism (IAS), a California non-profit, humanitarian organization and a United Nations NGO/DPI, was founded in 1983 to create and provide a global forum for a continuing dialogue amongst Sufis, scholars, interfaith leaders, poets and artists from diverse cultures, nations and schools; to bring together Sufi principles and scientific understanding; and to promote equality and human rights.
