Religious Diversity & Bridgebuilding


Moving Forward Together to Protect Our Democracy

We believe that to quell the threats of authoritarianism, we must build a broad coalition of people who may have major disagreements on politics and policy but who are nonetheless willing to unite in defense of our democracy.

About Religious Diversity & Bridgebuilding

The Big Picture

Our nation is divided in unprecedented ways. Experts say polarization negatively affects our national security, public health, economic strength, and civic fabric. National efforts to bridge these deep divides have never been more urgent.

The Opportunity

A growing bridgebuilding field has emerged to address this crisis of division and unite Americans around a common purpose. Interfaith America is an active catalyst, collaborator, and thought leader in this sector, partnering with field leaders and providing essential insights that show how religiously diverse communities can bring Americans together.

What We Do

Interfaith America facilitates skill-building opportunities so leaders can bridge deep divides. We do this through partnerships, collaborations, and consulting opportunities.
