PURPOSE: To encourage interfaith dialogue and awareness by uniting people of different faiths in conversation over tea and coffee
The idea of an Interfaith Café came from a group of people who dropped an interfaith clergy group and missed having conversations on cross-faith topics. Interfaith Café initiative started small and has grown to include a small group of leaders who coordinate events, the Interfaith Coalition. They have kept meeting every month for about 2 years. While the most memorable activity of this group has been the Interfaith Café, members have also brought people together in 2-3 Family Days at the park, an Interfaith Earth Day and Fairs. These actions have been impactful too. Participants are enabled to speak in a more inclusive way, and this spreads into the community. The group is finding ways to spread out to more people to help break down stereotypes and bias in all their forms and to help understanding to grow. They plan to register as an NGO, roll out social media campaigns and do more outreach to the community as well.
