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.
