Taking Action Together

Welcome to our Annual Impact Report

Peace, Justice, and Healing for All

Dear URI Friends,

Peace, justice, and healing are worth celebrating! Even with all the grief our planet is experiencing, we take this moment to acknowledge how, together, we at URI continue to seed respect for difference.

As your new executive director, I am highly energized to serve this higher calling to build the world’s largest interfaith peacebuilding movement. I take very seriously our transformative three-pronged mission: to promote enduring, daily interfaith cooperation; to end religiously motivated violence; and to create cultures of peace, justice, and healing for the Earth and all living beings.

These are not idle words. URI has built a powerful network of peace activists achieving positive impact in communities in 118 countries, with community-based interfaith Cooperation Circles are on the frontline of grassroots change-making.

In this year’s annual report, we highlight stories about our efforts, big and small, local and global, to protect the Earth. Did you know we are responsible for planting more a quarter of a million trees worldwide?

You and I are URI. Together we dig deeper. Together we plant. Together we harvest goodness for the sake of humanity and the planet.

We are laying the groundwork for a world of inspiration in action, celebrating the dignity of difference every day. Together.

I’m deeply grateful to each and every one of us difference-makers.

May Peace Prevail,
Jerry White
