About Faith & Civic Life

The Big Picture

Religiously diverse communities are vital contributors to the lifeblood of America’s civic landscape. From disaster relief to climate change, from refugee resettlement to election integrity, religiously diverse communities are key leaders.

The Opportunity

Interfaith America turns shared values into shared action by working with religiously diverse communities around common goals. A thriving, resilient democracy must engage religious diversity for the common good. While polarization appears to dominate the nation, a majority of Americans want to live in a religiously diverse democracy — though they may lack the skills to unlock that diversity’s potential.

What We Do

Interfaith America creates curricula and convenes technology and faith leaders to combat hate and disinformation online, encourage better technologies that serve people of all traditions, and train a new generation of leaders to use the internet to increase interfaith understanding and collaborate for the common good.

Interfaith America equips leaders to mobilize across lines of difference around issues of common concern. Our Faith in the Vaccine program activated 2000+ religiously diverse ambassadors in Covid-19 vaccine outreach. The Vote Is Sacred initiative trains religiously diverse college students to protect our democracy and elections. Our emerging leaders work across a range of sectors, including healthcare, education, and climate action.
