Religion & Society Program

The mission of the Religion & Society Program is to strengthen the understanding of religion’s role in advancing equity and the common good by shifting ideas, policies, and practices.

Launched in 2012, the Program envisions a society where religious and non-religious people thrive, respecting and engaging together across beliefs. We call this vision Religious Pluralism.

The world we live in today is multi-religious, multi-racial and multi-ethnic. The Religion & Society Program believes there is value in those differences. The Program focuses on bridging the gap between ideas and impact, building the capacity of faith-based leaders, galvanizing philanthropic investment through our Religious Pluralism Funder’s Circle, and serving as a national knowledge hub through our scholarship that informs and connects leaders from various fields and worldviews. By emphasizing network and community building, through our Powering Pluralism Network, the Program is creating and amplifying connections that can break down barriers for generations to come.

Make sure you follow the Program on Twitter and sign up for our monthly newsletter.
