Fulton is the most ethnically and religiously diverse county in the state of Georgia, and we can capitalize on this by bringing together our various faith and community organizations to engage in real change and progress. The recent national mood of divisiveness and separation is not representative of our value as a nation or a county, and working together with peoples of different faiths and cultures toward common goals is the best way to combat this.
The Fulton Interfaith Council has been meeting since July 2016, and has brought together peoples from different religious backgrounds to work towards these goals:
- Proactive action toward interfaith understanding and activities
- Engage reactively against hate incidents in the community
- Address social issues around discrimination, marginalization, and identity politics
- Develop a Youth Leadership Program to provide children and teens exposure on various religions and cultures
