United Religions Initiative is a global grassroots network with the mission of promoting enduring, daily interfaith cooperation, to end religiously motivated violence and to create cultures of peace, justice and healing for the Earth and all living beings. Our big family is comprised of 668 Cooperation Circles (groups of at least seven members representing least three different spiritual expressions) in 85 countries. Many of the global office staff are in the URI offices located at the Presidio in San Francisco.
Sixty two of the Cooperation Circles are located in the U.S. and Canada and are celebrating World Interfaith Harmony Week in ways unique and suited to their own communities.You can read more about their celebrations here.
Bay Area Cooperation Circles include California Interfaith Power and Light, Ik Onkar Peace Foundation, Interfaith Center at the Presidio, Interfaith Council of Contra Costa County, Marin Interfaith Council, San Francisco Interfaith Council, Silicon Valley Interreligious Council, Coalition of Welcoming Congregations in the Bay Area, URI Global Staff Deepening the Journey, URI San Francisco Peninsula, and Women’s Interfaith Circle of Service.
It’s World Interfaith Harmony Week, and to celebrate, ICP is highlighting some of the interfaith organizations and programs that circle the San Francisco Bay Area.
