Know Your Neighbor: Multifaith Encounters

Introduction to the Know Your Neighbor: Multifaith Encounters Program

Know Your Neighbor: Multifaith Encounters is a national grassroots program that is the outgrowth of a coalition of around 20 organizations that was launched at the White House in December, 2015 to work on policy concerning civil rights. Founded on American values of religious freedom and pluralism and of diversity and inclusion and motivated by a desire to effect social change at the grassroots level through community engagement, the Know Your Neighbor: Multifaith Encounters program was created to promote understanding and mutual respect among Americans of diverse religious and ethical traditions. It has grown into a collaborative effort of nearly a hundred national and regional organizations and groups with diverse missions and objectives who work together on campaigns that push back against bigotry and discrimination while promoting civil dialogue across differences, building relationships and peaceful communities, and advancing human rights and justice.
