We’re excited to announce the launch of a new national grassroots, multifaith campaign along with several other prestigious organizations that include the Baptist Joint Committee, Interfaith Alliance, Sikh Coalition, Religions for Peace, The Becket Fund, Shoulder to Shoulder, among many others. Launched first at the White House, the campaign responds to the voices of hate and division which are growing louder and more numerous, particularly against Arab, Middle Eastern, Muslim, and South Asian (AMEMSA) communities, and other minorities. Together, we seek to respond to anti-minority sentiment, bigotry, and hatred by encouraging and facilitating face-to-face engagement, relationship-building, dialogue, and action between people of different religious traditions, beliefs, and cultures.
