What We Do


Programmatically, RFPUSA’s work is focused around four centers: 1) building community, 2) addressing diversity, and 3) protecting the Earth and 4.) examining the role of the U.S. in the world. As an example of the work in each area, RFPUSA is supporting respectively:
1) the development of interreligious councils in local communities as an “ounce of prevention,”
2) working in select communities on the issue of “Islamaphobia,”
3) dissemination and utilization of RFP’s Climate Change Toolkits for Religious Leaders, and
4) the fostering of dialogues in local communities about the role of the U.S. in the world.
