" Men often hate each other because they fear each other; they fear each other because they don't know each other; they don't know each other because they can not communicate; they can not communicate because they are separated."
~ Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr.
What We Offer:
Interfaith Community Initiatives, Inc. (ICI) embraces the mission of transforming the Atlanta metropolitan area into a model community for interfaith and inter-cultural understanding and collaboration. We do this by developing and leading innovating, inviting programs that inspire deep, personal friendships and community engagement. Our intentionally designed experiential programs include:
The World Pilgrims program is based on the principle that before people of different religions can constructively discuss their differences they need to develop personal relationships with each other. An atmosphere of friendship and trust must be established, before honest and productive dialogue can take place about areas of disagreement. In the end, the goals are not to “convert” one’s religious or political beliefs, but rather to increase empathy and understanding, reduce conflict, and ultimately create opportunities for cooperative action.
