Greetings from Cambridge! This year marks the Pluralism Project’s 25th anniversary. Recently, we’ve been taking some time to look back at our accomplishments, to assess the need for the critical work of pluralism in the climate of our nation today, and to look forward toward our future. We’re excited about what’s next for the Pluralism Project and we’d like to make sure you’re a part of it.
This past spring, we launched our newly re-designed website, www.pluralism.org. We also installed an exhibit, “The Pluralism Project at 25: Challenge and Promise,” at Harvard Divinity School’s Andover Harvard Theological Library. The exhibit highlights the development and impact of the Pluralism Project’s research, educational resources, and networks. Both remind me of how contributions from friends and colleagues like you have made the Pluralism Project what it is today.
On September 22-23 we will host “The Pluralism Project at Twenty Five: Diversity and Inclusion in the American Crucible,” an interdisciplinary conversation that will explore the challenges religious diversity poses for diverse sectors, including business, education, government, non-profits, and religious communities. This event will also be an opportunity to explore the many dilemmas and decisions we face as individuals, professionals, and as citizens in an increasingly diverse world. We hope that you will join us for this important conversation.
More details will be posted online at www.pluralism.org/events/pp-at-25/.
To honor this anniversary milestone and the many relationships that have brought us to today, will you please join me in making a financial contribution to support our work? Your ongoing partnership and support is invaluable. Your gift will be both a celebration of all that we have accomplished together and an investment in our common future.
There are two ways to give: You can make a donation online or mail a check (made out to Harvard University). For more information, please visit www.pluralism.org/about/contribute/donate/. Whichever way you choose to give, you have our gratitude.
