Faith in Community: Building Bridges of Trust
Build trust in the COVID-19 vaccine and bridge gaps in information, resources, and access to strengthen community health.
A Guide for Impactful Partnership
During the Covid-19 pandemic, Interfaith America has increased trust in and access to the vaccine through a national Faith in the Vaccine Ambassadors (FIVA) initiative. In the Carolinas, this work has been supported through the generosity of The Duke Endowment, based in Charlotte. Both nationally and regionally, the program highlighted the positive role religion and interfaith cooperation could play in a moment of national crisis, as well as the promise of engaging diverse religious identities and communities to foster human wellbeing. This brochure captures the initiative’s model for effective partnership for those who seek to build trust and bridge gaps in information, resources, and access to strengthen community health.
