Two Ways to Be a Part of URI in North America
What is a CC? Interfaith Cooperation Circles (CCs) are the heart of URI. Independently organized, self-governing and self-funding, they build cooperation among people of all faiths and traditions to address the most pressing issues facing their collective communities, including poverty, religiously motivated violence, environmental degradation and more.Cooperation Circles vary widely. While one circle might meet regularly to exchange stories, meals and conversation in order to deepen interfaith understanding, another might exist to address a specific community need. Yet another might work to create interfaith educational opportunities. Circles can be created “from scratch” or from existing organizations that support the URI Preamble, Purpose, and Principles.Examples of CC activities in North America include:

Affiliating with URI allows our colleagues to connect with others who share similar values and commitments both in the North America region and globally. Affiliates also:
