Interfaith Alliance was founded in 1994 in the midst of growing entanglement between religion and politics. Its founders sought to show that the Religious Right was not the only authentic voice of faith in this country, that the Constitution protects the right of each individual to believe as they choose but not to impose those beliefs on others.
In the quarter-century since, we have stood as a leader in defense of true religious freedom. Interfaith Alliance is the only national interfaith organization dedicated to protecting the integrity of both religion and democracy in America. Our membership is made up of individuals rather than institutions, in all 50 states and serving overseas in the U.S. military, and adhering to more than 75 faith traditions and belief systems.
“Interfaith Alliance is unique in our mission to protect religious freedom for all Americans regardless of their faith or belief,” said Rabbi Jack Moline, president of Interfaith Alliance. “While others are engaged in this effort, they often bring with them a specific sectarian perspective. We embrace the positive role religion can play, and we work to ensure one brand of beliefs can’t be imposed on anyone without their consent.”
