Global Faith Forum


Together for Peace in a Time of Outrage

Oct 22-23, 2023 • Phoenix, AZ


About Unlikely Conference

Outrage is consuming our society, with anger and hostility permeating every facet of life. Recent studies report that political polarization in the US has reached a record high, resulting in cancel culture and a breakdown of empathy. Kindness and accountability have been abandoned in favor of political expediency, putting the very foundations of our democracy at risk. We must take action to reverse this trend, engaging in civil discourse and embracing diverse perspectives, before it’s too late. Our future depends on it.

At the Global Faith Forum, we will tackle the topics of civility, citizenship, and how to be a good neighbor from a variety of religious perspectives. Together, we will learn how EveryONE, individually and as a whole, can work on building peace in a time of outrage.

What to

Multi-Faith Neighbors Network and Muslim World League are hosting the Global Faith Forum, which is a gathering of unlikely allies with the goal of building flourishing communities. We are moving from a conversation about others faiths, to a conversation with other faiths.  A conversation that allows us to hear from those of different faiths, different worldviews, and different ideas that shape the way we communicate. Whether you’re a religious leader like a Pastor, Imam or Rabbi, or a person of faith, this is your chance to understand the realities of faith in the 21st century. This event brings together distinct bodies of faith for greater understanding while facing our differences with grace and humility.

As a long-time champion of bridge-building between different religions, not many have worked to cross divides in the world more than Dr. Mohammad Al-Issa. From acknowledging the Holocaust to reaching out to different faiths & ideas, this has led to the culmination of his writing of the Makkah Declaration in 2019.
