The Global Context
Religions for Peace’s global family of religious leaders and interreligious councils is vast, with more than 90 national and 5 regional bodies. In this environment, the U.S. has a unique role, responsibility and relationship to global matters.
In the US we have 60 member communities and 2 tables of senior US leaders. Our current priority areas of work – in climate change, immigration and Islamophobia – and model of leveraging religious leaders and their communities position RfPUSA as a unique player in the interfaith field.
Kathryn Lohre, Executive Council, Religions for Peace USA
“As part of our vocation in a multi-religious world, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America is member organization of Religions for Peace USA, and by extension, Religions for Peace International. By joining with people and communities of other religious traditions, whom we view as our neighbors in this country and across the globe, we are able to amplify our voices and actions for peace and justice in God’s world.”
