Forty years ago, IFC was born of the conviction that diversity only strengthens the unity of our communities. 

Today, the need for transformational unity is even more important.

As members of the Baha’i, Buddhist, Hindu, Jain, Jewish, Latter-day Saint, Muslim, Protestant, Roman Catholic, Sikh and Zoroastrian faiths, we are resolved to build an inclusive community so that one day people of all religious backgrounds will feel welcomed, respected, and appreciated for their common values and for their diverse beliefs and practices.
