Salt Lake Interfaith Roundtable
Created in 2002, the Salt Lake Interfaith Roundtable is a group of faith leaders who promote love, harmony, and understanding among people of all faith traditions, cultures, and belief systems.
The Roundtable's goals and objectives are:
· To facilitate interfaith respect, understanding, and appreciation
· To increase understanding through interfaith dialogue
· To build community interfaith collaborations
· To explore ways to address issues of religiously motivated hate and conflict in our community
· To promote continuing respect for cultural diversity, human potential, and world peace
Roundtable membership is made up of over 220 individuals who represent over 65 faith communities throughout the metropolitan Salt Lake City, Utah area. In addition, there are a number of individuals from community, government, and other faith-based organizations who affiliate with the Roundtable.
Looking ahead to 2013, the Roundtable will continue its work with all people, but especially with youth on a community-wide anti-bullying campaign.
The highlight of the Roundtable's year is the annual Interfaith Month in February. The main point of this annual event is to invite people to attend any one of a number of activities, thus giving them the opportunity to learn about faiths other than their own, and to view those faiths from their perspective as opposed to misinformation or rumor. The month culminates with an interfaith musical tribute with performances and blessings from all the diverse traditions.
The Salt Lake Interfaith Roundtable is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
