Nissan Foundation Awards a Grant to Religious Diversity Journeys

The Nissan Foundation has named the InterFaith Leadership Council of Metropolitan Detroit a 2021 grant recipient. “We are grateful for the Nissan Foundation’s support. Since 2002, thousands of 7th graders have learned about our region’s diverse religions through visits to many houses of worship. RDJ helps counteract stereotypes and encourages friendships among students of different religions and ethnicities. The Nissan grant will assist with program tuition for schools that need financial support,” said IFLC President Raman Singh.

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.

Religious Diversity Journeys

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.
