Please join the Charter for a special weeklong series of presentations during World Interfaith Harmony Week, inspired with the work of Muslim-Christian dialog.

We are exploring the need for developing compassion to understand and benefit from a world that is marked by diversity and pluralism—in life forms, in cultural patterns, in faith pathways, in physical characteristics like skin color and body shapes.

Among the topics we will grapple with in these calls:

  • The value of engaging with the "other"
  • Embracing pluralism: how to celebrate diversity while cultivating culture
  • Responding to fundamentalism: politics and religion
  • When bigotry becomes normalized
  • How to represent a community not our own (For example, Christians confronting Islamophobia, straight people supporting gay, lesbian and transgender communities)
  • While our primary focus will be on topics related to Islamophobia—and we will continue to update our Guide Book (here), we will look for opportunities to make connection with other issues, including racism, Mideast tensions, gender equality and gender identity
