United Religious Initiative

URI is a global grassroots interfaith network that cultivates peace and justice by engaging people to bridge religious and cultural differences and work together for the good of their communities and the world. They implement their mission through local and global initiatives that build the capacity of our member groups and organizations called Cooperation Circles to engage in community action such as conflict resolution and reconciliation, environmental sustainability, education, women’s and youth programs, and advocacy for human rights. URI envisions a world at peace, sustained by engaged and interconnected communities committed to respect for diversity, and nonviolent resolution of conflict, and they work to promote enduring, daily interfaith cooperation to end religiously motivated violence.
