The Inclusive America Project

This grant supports updates to and the dissemination of the Inclusive America Project’s “Principled Pluralism” report, a 2013 product of a distinguished panel co-chaired by Madeleine Albright and David Gergen. The 2013 report presented proven strategies for managing America’s religious diversity in a way that promotes informed respect and social cohesion. The updated report aims to: 

  • Build bridges between individuals and organizations focused on youth development and interfaith efforts;
  • Highlight and promote best practice models that can be utilized by community groups and local branches of national organizations; and 
  • Promote collaboration between organizations focused on religious pluralism and those focused on religious freedom who share a mission to protect core American values.

This project is the fourth of a series by The Inclusive America Project, an initiative of the Aspen Institute’s Justice & Society Program. For four decades, the Justice & Society Program has convened individuals from diverse backgrounds to discuss the meaning of justice and how a just society ought to balance fundamental rights with the exigencies of public policy. The Inclusive America Project was launched in 2011 as a response to rising Islamophobia, and as an effort to examine best practice models for multifaith engagement around the common good.
