Our purpose is to gather and promote dialogue among religious groups in Rio. To organize interfaith social action and solidarity campaigns.

We are aware of the need for a culture of peace and continue with the activities we develop to strengthen dialogue and respect among different religious traditions and spiritual groups. To do, we partner with ISER (Instituto para Estudios Religiosos) and other associations. We also participate in meetings and work with the government of Rio de Janeiro state through the secretariat for Social Assistance and Human Rights (we discuss and develop public policies against religious intolerance) and the secretariat for the Environment (we participate in the Managing Council of the State Parks to guarantee the harmony between the care for the environment and religious practices) Our most outstanding activities in 2008 have been:

  1. Participation of the Project Brasil Real – to discuss about family, environment, media and communications with the participation of 10 religious traditions
  2. Participation in seminars about sexuality and religion in the University of the State of Rio de Janeiro to deal with homophobia among religious groups
  3. Participation with ISER of Degase program (Department of Educational Policies for children in Conflict with the Law) to assist youth

We dream that through people's solidarity and compassion, together we can build up a better city and become an example.
