In a world of rising violence fueled by tensions between peoples of different beliefs and cultures, interfaith peacebuilders work together daily to resolve conflicts and create the conditions essential for sustainable peace by bridging religious, cultural and political differences for the good of their communities and the world.

URI will be hosting an international gathering on interfaith strategies for global peacebuilding on June 26 – 27, 2019 at Stanford University, California, USA that will bring together grassroots interfaith peacebuilders, policy experts, religious leaders, and representatives from the United Nations and international and interfaith organizations. The conference will explore issues of promoting interfaith cooperation to end religiously motivated violence and build cultures of peace, justice and healing in communities and countries around the world.
