Center for Engaged Religious Pluralism

Religious Pluralism Engaging Political Culture, Public Policy, and the Professions


Since its founding in 2008, the Center has been dedicated to the civic engagement of religiously diverse voices and promoting interfaith leadership in and for the public square and the professions grounded in pluralism as an American value. As Founding Director Barbara A. McGraw has said, “Pluralism arises from the values of liberty, equal dignity, conscience, and participation embodied in (even if not fully achieved by) the founding documents of the United States, and is at the heart of America’s Sacred Ground.”
