Interfaith America is a non-profit organization that inspires, equips, and connects leaders and institutions to unlock the potential of America’s religious diversity.
Interfaith America’s Emerging Leaders Network inspires, equips, and connects members of our network and the institutions they serve. We equip our leaders to make an impact with grants and learning resources. We inspire by sharing stories of Emerging Leaders creating change in their communities. Finally, we connect our leaders with each other through convenings and fellowships.
