Treasures of Uptown

Treasures logoThe Treasures of Uptown Interfaith Action Coalition is a group of clergy and laypeople from the Baha’i, Buddhist, Christian, Jewish, Muslim, and Unitarian-Universalist traditions who want to help create interfaith dialog and action to promote harmony and greater knowledge and understanding among the diverse peoples of Uptown.

We hold public events, with different religious groups hosting, as we discuss themes that cut across religious lines and across the human experience. We are organizing to develop actions to involve people working side by side to make a difference in our world and our community. And every month we hold an informal, lively interfaith discussion over coffee at an Uptown area restaurant.  Join us on Facebook!
