The Pluralism Project is a two decade-long research initiative that engages students, academics, and community members in studying the new religious landscape of the United States. The religious demographics of America are changing as immigrants from all over the world take the oath of citizenship and claim the United States as their home. From the beginning this has been a nation of religious diversity, but today it is one of the most religiously diverse nation on earth, despite its overwhelming Christian majority.

We invite you to reflect on this diversity during World Interfaith Harmony Week. As we gather to mark this international event with neighbors and friends, old and new, we invite you to use this resource as a conversation starter. This brief guide offers a preview of the resources available at In particular, this guide is a roadmap for navigating On Common Ground: World Religions in America, an interactive web resource based on over two decades of research by the Pluralism Project and our affiliates. By exploring and discussing these resources, we hope that you will be inspired to investigate the religious landscape of your own city or town.
