Created in 1978, the InterFaith Council of Metropolitan Washington (IFC) brings together eleven historic faith communities to promote dialogue, understanding and a sense of community and to work cooperatively for justice throughout the DC region.

IFC members currently include the Baha’i, Buddhist, Hindu, Jain, Jewish, Latter-day Saints, Muslim, Protestant, Roman Catholic, Sikh and Zoroastrian faith communities.  We work towards creating a just community through coalition-building, education, training and advocacy; by uniting diverse faith leaders to speak and act together; by publishing community resources; and by holding public events including concerts, award ceremonies, lectures, and public dialogues.
