Abstract
As an interfaith advocate, Humanist, and Unitarian Universalist minister, I have observed that the philosophical tradition of Humanism is too often a missing voice in interfaith dialogue and action. Continuing to ignore this reality has the potential to further deepen the dangerous divide between people of religious and secular beliefs and fails to capture the positive impact that collaboration can have on urgent social justice issues. In this project I will raise awareness, in Connecticut, among Humanists and interfaith groups of the existence of each demographic and will gauge the willingness both have to cooperate with each other. I will explore the trends in group membership and use of technology to build community and examine the Humanist Manifesto for evidence of a call to cooperate with religious adherents. The result of the above actions in this project is the development of a Collaboration Vision Initiative that establishes the process utilized to bring Humanists and religious believers together. The project will demonstrate a shift in the interfaith landscape that calls for inclusion of Humanists in interfaith social justice engagement.
