CoMMunity Values Project

We each hold personal and social values that inform the ways we live. Our Community Values Project brings together members of diverse backgrounds to engage in respectful dialogue around the values we hold.

Programs and events

Along with our partner organizations, the InterFaith Leadership Council hosts frequent educational programs and special events. We are currently offering a mix of both in-person and virtual events. The public is invited and most activities are free.

Our longest-standing program brings 7th graders from Metro Detroit area schools to visit houses of worship. Students learn about five major religions, share some of their traditions, and learn to build bridges of understanding in their community.
