Chicago, IL, USA

Chicago is a special place to the interfaith movement. In 1893, the first gathering of diverse religious and spiritual leaders from around the world to share their perspectives and engage in interreligious dialogue took place as part of the Chicago World's Fair. The World's Parliament of Religions in Chicago gave birth to a dynamic and historic global movement.

Today, Chicago remains a stronghold of interfaith activity as the home to interfaith organizations like the Parliament of the World's Religions, Interfaith Youth Core, Faith in Place, and countless others.
