We’re creating an ecosystem of people and campuses designed to make interfaith cooperation the norm, while creating the next generation of interfaith leaders.

IFYC's Commitment to Interfaith Leadership & Racial Equity
We at IFYC are outraged at the death of George Floyd at the hands of four Minneapolis police officers. Over the past weeks, we have joined the swelling ranks of those who demand justice for Mr. Floyd as well as Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Tony McDade, Rayshard Brooks, and the long list of names of those who have died, or whose lives have been destroyed because of police brutality and entrenched racism. We will honor their lives with our words, but more importantly, with our actions. We believe in the essential contributions of countless religious and philosophical traditions that affirm the dignity and justice for every human being. In this critical moment, IFYC affirms and supports work for racial equity and the truth that Black Lives Matter.
IFYC is committed to interfaith leadership in what is the most religiously diverse nation in the world. Mobilizations of movements for a better world have, in part, been fueled by interfaith cooperation. IFYC acknowledges we have work to do, both internally and in our programmatic offerings, and we are committed to the movement for Black lives in America.
