The InterFaith Leadership Council of Metropolitan Detroit

America has described herself in many ways. It is often thought of as a melting pot or as a tapestry of cultures woven together. Religious and cultural diversity has grown exponentially since 1965. So many differences, so many opportunities for misunderstanding and tension. Our mission in a nutshell is to take practical steps to transform all of those difficulties into creative energy and build a metropolitan Detroit community that thrives on the basis of what we have in common and what we can learn from one another. Please join with us. We welcome your contribution.

The Resiliency Project: Commitment Statement

On the eve of the national Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. commemoration, the InterFaith Leadership Council of Metropolitan Detroit is distributing a “Commitment to be Resilient” statement, as a way to begin a series of conversations in reaction to the tension in society following the recent presidential election.
With the release of its commitment statement, the IFLC is calling on all communities of faith that are committed to social justice to promote this statement among their congregants.
