The Arizona Faith Network joins with local imams, rabbis, and Christian judicatory leaders to build bridges of trust and understanding and pray with one another.

As we welcome the newness of spring, we also welcome a new member into the URI family -- the first Cooperation Circle in New Hampshire. New horizons were also opened to us this month when technology enabled us to learn directly from peacebuilders from Europe, Africa, and South America. And, as grassroots activists continue to build peace in dozens of communities across the continent, we are proud to stand beside and support their incredible work.
