The mission of UPF fits nicely into the new discursive of the twenty-first century. As we drift away from deeply rooted segregation and begin to understand about cultural others, diversity leads us to organize the kinds of efforts UPS champions. The multicultural products produced help a culturally recalcitrant and young America appreciate religious and cultural differences.

UPF doesn't just make award-winning films, they also have an array of tools – helpful guides, outreach workshops, models for dialogue, classroom materials, etc. – that extend the impact of those films for people seeking to advance cultural and inter-religious understanding. It is a leanly run outfit that helps people understand Muslims and Islam better.

UPF has an understanding of social change models and are offering intelligent and engaging educational programs that reach well into America's classrooms, Hollywood's backrooms, and even the corridors of policymakers, law enforcement, and the military. They stand alone in the field of interfaith relations.
