About Us

Founded in 2000, the United Religions Initiative (URI) is a global interfaith network that promotes peace and justice by engaging people at the grassroots level to bridge religious and cultural differences and work together for the good of their communities and the world.

The purpose of the United Religions Initiative (URI) is to promote enduring, daily interfaith cooperation, to end religiously motivated violence and to create cultures of peace, justice and healing for the Earth and all living beings. Cooperation Circles (CCs) are the foundational unit, the center and the life of URI. Self- governing and self-funding, they bring people of all beliefs together to address the most pressing issues facing their communities, building bridges of compassion and understanding between people of different religious and cultural traditions. There are presently over 999 CCs in 109 countries.

Working together, groups of URI members from diverse belief traditions identify and address pressing problems with grassroots ingenuity. Projects and programs undertaken by our Cooperation Circles serve one or more of 14 Action Areas including the Environment, Health & Social Services, Human Rights, Indigenous Peoples, Peacebuilding, Women, and Youth.

URI cultivates and uplifts the CC network through eight regional offices around the world and a Global Support Office in San Francisco. URI is governed by a Global Council of Trustees elected by & from member CCs. For more information visit www.uri.org.
