On January 6, 2003 the Contra Costa Times reported that "the Greater Richmond Interfaith Program, a coalition of churches, synagogues and mosques [in CA]... has led the way to feed, shelter and otherwise care for the region's homeless population... 'We get together and don't worry about the differences,' said [Elisabeth] Miller, a member of Temple Beth Hillel in Richmond. 'We're all the same people. We just worship differently.'...'We don't have geographic or political gain to fight over, because that's what they're fighting for around the world,' said [Ahmad ] Rasheed, who is from the Muslim Peace Community in the same city. 'Our object is to come together and work together.'"
