MFNN builds mutual trust and respect among faith leaders through civic engagement, authentic relationships, and honest dialogue leading to resilient, compassionate, and flourishing communities — communities that are more interconnected and resilient to hate, violence, and polarization.
Founded by Pastor Bob Roberts Jr., Imam Mohamed Magid & Rabbi David Saperstein, MFNN coordinates grassroots movements with religious leaders across various faith traditions, while never sacrificing each faith tradition's unique theological identity. Working cooperatively, even in the midst of often irreconcilable theological differences, faith leaders mobilize their congregations to serve their communities in order to model the kind of society that all of us are trying to build – one where community, cooperation, and the common good are lived out.ABOUT MFNN
Outrage is consuming our society, with anger and hostility permeating every facet of life. Recent studies report that political polarization in the US has reached a record high, resulting in cancel culture and a breakdown of empathy. Kindness and accountability have been abandoned in favor of political expediency, putting the very foundations of our democracy at risk. We must take action to reverse this trend, engaging in civil discourse and embracing diverse perspectives, before it’s too late. Our future depends on it.
At the Global Faith Forum, we will tackle the topics of civility, citizenship, and how to be a good neighbor from a variety of religious perspectives. Together, we will learn how EveryONE, individually and as a whole, can work on building peace in a time of outrage.Learn More
Never before in history has there been such a diverse mixture of religions like we see today. But do we know how to get along well? We’re building a new way of relating to one another and investing in the currency of relationships – mutual trust.LEARN MORE
We believe that when Pastors, Imams, Rabbis, and other religious leaders come together to learn from each other, they become models for their own faith communities. By way of example, they remove fear and increase understanding within their own tribe.OUR APPROACH
MFNN IN THE NEWS
Multi-Faith vs. Interfaith
We have partnered with organizations such as the Templeton Religion Trust, the Doha International Centre on Interfaith Dialogue, The Institute for Global Engagement, Forum for Promoting Peace in Muslim Societies, El-Hibri Foundation, and continue to partner with similar organizations to build relationships between clerics – that spreads to grassroots action – in order to bring down tensions and build flourishing communities.PARTNER WITH US
