Our Story

From Interfaith Youth Core to Interfaith America

From Interfaith Youth Core to Interfaith America

Interfaith America was founded in 2002 based on the idea that religious difference should serve as a bridge of cooperation rather than a barrier of division. Since that time, Interfaith America has evolved from a small Chicago-based nonprofit to the nation’s premier interfaith organization.

Building Interfaith America

Interfaith America will serve as a catalyst, a resource, and a partner for building Interfaith America the nation. We delight in knowing that we walk this path with many others — college campuses, government agencies, houses of worship, civic groups, media organizations, private companies, other interfaith organizations, and individuals of goodwill everywhere. The 21st-century American city on a hill has a steeple, a mosque, a synagogue, a sangha, a ward, a temple, a gurudwara, a secular humanist society, and more. You and I are not just citizens of this city — together, we are architects of it. Now, let’s build.
