6 Ways for Finding and Sharing Reliable Religious Information Online

Facts are the most precious and contested commodity online. As interfaith leaders, we believe that it is necessary to have our traditions and communities, and those of others, accurately represented.

About Tech & Interfaith

The Big Picture

There are 325 million internet users in America who are online an average of 8.5 hours per day — a third of their lives. It’s where Americans gather to work, play, and pray.

The Opportunity

The internet creates challenges for individuals and communities who are targeted based on religious identity. Digital interactions can increase distrust and animosity between people from different religious traditions. However, the internet also offers an unprecedented opportunity for people of diverse religious backgrounds to meet, learn, and build new bridges of understanding and cooperation.

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.
