About Interfaith Alliance:
Interfaith Alliance was created in 1994 to act as a counterweight to the outsized influence of the religious right in American politics. From its inception, Interfaith Alliance has mobilized to challenge the notion that there is one voice representing the religious and moral perspective of the people, and to invite coalitions to work together against the bigotry and hatred arising from religious and political extremism. For the past 30 years, Interfaith Alliance has organized people from diverse backgrounds to build an inclusive democracy that celebrates people of all faiths and none to receive equal treatment under the law.
Today, the need for our work has only grown with the rise of Christian nationalism, the erosion of democracy with accompanying violence, and divisions at every level of society. At the same time, America’s growing diversity offers new opportunities to imagine and build a democracy that serves all its people.
Interfaith Alliance works in three interconnected areas: 1) At the national level with our offices in D.C. directing advocacy and legislative initiatives with an inclusive lens 2) Across the country offering resources, training and networking with diverse partners including with our Interfaith Alliance affiliates and Interfaith Leadership Network; 3) Educating a broad and growing public through a robust digital communications strategy, media impact and State of Belief radio and podcast.
Interfaith Alliance advances an inclusive vision of religious freedom by protecting religious minorities; combating hate, including Islamophobia and antisemitism; promoting reproductive freedom; strengthening public schools; and achieving LGBTQ+ and racial equality. Our advocacy aims to shift the common narrative that people of faith – or those who are secular – share a particular worldview or vote a certain way.
The Executive Assistant to the President will join the team in a pivotal moment in the organization’s history that includes the recent appointment of Rev. Paul Brandeis Raushenbush, the new President/CEO, for the launch of our 30th year and a promising season of growth and impact.
