Mission Statement

To promote an understanding of the world's religions through education and inter-religious dialogue as a vehicle for positive change. The public impact of religion has increased worldwide. At the same time, religion has been a significant factor in civil wars, national conflicts and acts of terrorism. It has never been more important to reinforce and promote American ideals of tolerance and religious freedom that are enshrined in the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and help build more peaceful communities where people of diverse backgrounds come to know and respect each other. It is to this end that ING is seeking to promote understanding through civil discourse. We hope to do this through:

  • civic engagement
  • education about faith and religion in the "public square"
  • dialogues among people about faith

Description


Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, ING is a national educational outreach organization with affiliates and partners in 20 states, Canada and the United Kingdom. ING promotes interfaith dialogue and education about world religions and their contributions to civilization by annually delivering thousands of presentations and other educational programs in schools, universities, law enforcement agencies, corporations, healthcare facilities, and community centers. Reaching hundreds of groups and tens of thousands of individuals a year at the local, grassroots level, ING is building bridges among people of all faiths
