Employing strategically interwoven programs, IRTPJ implements interfaith education and collaboration, to promote cross-cultural understanding and effect universal religious tolerance.
Panel Discussions and Public Lectures
Since 2011, we have hosted various Panel Discussions and Public Lectures to educate the general public about world religions, and pertinent issues they face. Held at, and co-sponsored by numerous venues, topics have ranged from the nature of ISIS and Islamic extremism, to whether the Abrahamic faiths worship the same god.
INTERFAITH SOLIDARITY MARCH
Interfaith Solidarity Marches, our flagship program inaugurated in 2016, have served as a way to unite people of different faiths for a common cause: solidarity with those whose faiths are under attack. Several hundred marchers have joined us each time on our route, many joining our other programs. More galleries and video can be found here. #InterfaithMarchLA
The Interfaith Ambassadors Program, perhaps our signature program, facilitates educational and diplomatic visits to numerous houses of worship in the greater L.A. area, hosting people of all ages and backgrounds, who desire to learn about faiths not their own and build bridges.
Our Muslim Neighbors FORUM
Our Muslim Neighbors Forum, a collaboration with other faith-based organizations, seeks to deconstruct Islamophobia, featuring a panel of Muslims speaking candidly about their faith, fielding questions by audience members, and aiming to establish common ground.
