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 Interfaith 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
The Interfaith Roundtable's 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 Interfaith Roundtable.
The highlight of the Interfaith Roundtable's year is the annual Interfaith Season, which runs January through March. The main objective of Interfaith Season is to give people the opportunity to attend a number of activities where they may learn about, and become familiar with, faiths and belief systems other than their own. The Interfaith Season's activities culminate with the annual interfaith musical tribute, which features performances and blessings from diverse faith traditions.
The Salt Lake Interfaith Roundtable is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
