Interfaith Paths to Peace (IPP) is a grassroots community peacemaking organization. IPP was established in 1996 and has been serving the community for over 20 years with a mission of bringing people of different faiths, cultures, and philosophies together for the purpose of interfaith understanding and social justice based on the principles of peace and respect for one another. IPP does this mainly through the three pathways of educating, peacemaking, and collaborating. Our vision is to leave a more peaceful world for future generations.
IPP serves the community as a platform that showcases the endless possibilities when people work together on a common theme of social change to develop a trusting and respectful community of diverse faiths and cultures.
IPP's events enable collaboration among local organizations and within communities, thus developing the powerful ingredient of open interfaith dialogue in the peace-building process. Through dialogue, music, walks, vigils, and face-to-face discussions, IPP engages the community and surrounding regions in forms that influence a genuine appreciation of local faiths and cultures.
The need for enhancing sensitivity to others through education, respect, and understanding allows a fostering of unforeseen commonalities within our diverse community, reducing violence and resolving conflict. IPP is committed to promoting peaceful coexistence.
