Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships

Promoting Interfaith Dialogue and Cooperation

"…what I've come to understand is that regardless of your faith … people all have certain common hopes and common dreams."

President Obama is dedicated to fostering interfaith dialogue, cooperation and understanding. One of the priorities of the Office of Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships is to create opportunities for interreligious cooperation. To do this, this Office works with offices and programs throughout the Federal Government, including the National Security Council, Department of State, U.S. Agency for International Development and Corporation for National and Community Service to foster dialogue and cooperation at home and around the globe.
