Our world is increasingly diverseódiversity which can be frightening. Our quality of life improves when we feel safe and comfortable in our own communities. Getting to know and better understand our neighbors from different cultures and faith traditions allows us to experience a greater sense of security, comfort, and unity in our lives.

The Interfaith Center for Racial Justice (ICRJ) has been working for four decades to build bridges of understanding among people of different cultures and faith traditions.  Join
  us in this important venture, whether through attendance at our signature event: our annual MLK Holiday Celebration of Macomb County, participation in our unique Listen, Learn, & Live (LLL) programming, involvement in our Interfaith Breakfast Seminar, support of our LLL Summer Camp for Teenagers and Forums on Diversity segments, and/or by joining our organization as a member or volunteer. Together we can build a more cohesive community, a stronger region, and a better world for all.

Black / White Clergy Exchange Flyer
  In hopes of further initiating relationships and building bridges of understanding among Blacks and Whites, the ICRJ first organized an exchange in 2011 among two predominantly Black congregations and two primarily White congregations. Last year the six congregations participated in the exchange and organized and held an inaugural picnic in August at Christ Lutheran Church. This year ten congregations have signed on to be involved in the 2013 Black / White Exchange.
