Our mission

Albuquerque Interfaith strives to embody "universities of public life" dedicated to developing citizens in the fullest sense: participants in our democracy and agents in the creation of a more just society.

We believe in independence and are intentionally nonpartisan. We will not endorse any candidate or party for elected office, and we will not pursue or accept government funding for any of our organizations.

Albuquerque Interfaith works to:

  • Build relationships of trust among people and institutions across the racial, denominational, economic and geographic boundaries that divide our cities
  • Strengthen congregations and community institutions by developing the skills and capacity of their leaders
  • Create a vehicle for ordinary families to have a powerful voice in the decisions that affect their lives and communities, instead of leaving decision-making in the hands of a select few
  • Take action on concrete, winnable issues, that are transforming our communities every day.
