Local Faith-Based Organizations Seek Help for Afghan Refugees

More than 300 Afghan refugees will be settling in Westland and Ann Arbor over the next few weeks. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Westland is teaming up with Zaman International to assemble 60 basic needs kits.

The InterFaith Leadership Council will be holding a virtual Religious and Community Leaders Forum on Sunday, November 21 at 4 pm to discuss ways to coordinate support for these new neighbors.

The InterFaith Leadership Council of Metropolitan Detroit is a civic organization of lay and clerical people whose shared highest and best values compel us to work towards a thriving community.


We so miss gathering in person at our informal adult education opportunities.  But IFLC continues to be here for you as an educational and community outreach resource.


The InterFaith Leadership Council offers frequent educational programs and special events, usually at area houses of worship. But we will continue to have programs on a virtual basis, usually over Zoom.  The public is invited and most activities are free.

Get Involved

The InterFaith Leadership Council welcomes participation in our educational programs and special interfaith celebrations, as well as on some of our committees. Our enewsletter will keep you informed and sign-up is free.

More than 5,500 7th graders from Metro Detroit area schools have access to the online 2020-21 Religious Diversity Journeys program. Students will virtually visit houses of worship where they learn about five of metro Detroit’s religions, share some of their traditions, and learn to build bridges of understanding in their community.
