Forty years ago – in 1978 – 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.

This 40th anniversary year, we are renewing our efforts to build an inclusive interfaith community so that one day people of all religions will feel welcomed, respected, and appreciated for their common values and for their diverse beliefs and practices.
