New Identity Better Reflects American Religious Diversity
Washington, DC – The Interfaith Alliance is reintroducing itself today as the only national interfaith organization dedicated to protecting the integrity of both religion and democracy in America. The most apparent part of the new identity is the circle mosaic logo, but that is by no means the only aspect of the changes being made. In our changing political climate, the Interfaith Alliance has taken a careful look at how it represents itself in the world and has tailored its identity to more closely reflect its day-to-day work – protecting faith and freedom. The organization has sharpened its message and refined its image to better reflect its mission. To read more about the new identity visit www.interfaithalliance.org.
“Our new identity better represents the vibrant community and cultural differences that make up the mosaic of Americans’ diverse beliefs. That mosaic is now threatened by religious and political extremists seeking to impose their own religious views on our entire country, which is the most religiously pluralistic nation in the world,” said the Rev. Dr. C. Welton Gaddy, President of the Interfaith Alliance.
The Interfaith Alliance was created in 1994 to celebrate religious freedom and to challenge the bigotry and hatred arising from religious and political extremism infiltrating American politics. Today, the Interfaith Alliance has 185,000 members across the country representing 75 faith traditions as well as those of no faith tradition. The Interfaith Alliance champions religious freedom by respecting individual rights, promoting policies that protect both religion and democracy and uniting diverse voices to challenge extremism and build common ground.
“The Interfaith Alliance remains committed to its mission of tackling the very real issues at the intersection of religion and politics – passing stronger hate crimes legislation, ending government-funded religion through the ‘faith-based initiative,’ and promoting academic and scientific integrity,” said Rev. Gaddy.
