InterFaith Leadership Council Receives Fourth Grant from the Nissan Foundation
IFLC has received a $20,000 grant for Religious Diversity Journeys from the Nissan Foundation -- its fourth grant from this organization. ”We are very grateful for this recognition and support of Religious Diversity Journeys. These funds will help us bring immersive interfaith education to reach more students in metropolitan Detroit,” said Raman Singh.
As we recoil from the vicious hate crime in which ten innocent African Americans were murdered, we commit our communities to uniting to fight ideologies of hatred that threaten all of us and threaten the very fabric of the diversity of the United States of America.
Bridging to Belonging
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.
Religious Diversity Journeys
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.
FAith and works Podcast
Our podcast, Detroit Faith and Works, expores the role of religion in America today. Each episode features a panel of local religious leaders and members of the InterFaith Leadership Council community.
