Interfaith Center of New York
The Interfaith Center of New York seeks to make New York City and the world safe for religious difference by increasing respect and mutual understanding among people of different faith, ethnic, and cultural traditions and by fostering cooperation among religious communities and civic organizations to solve common social problems.

Not in Our Town (NIOT)
Not In Our Town highlights communities working together to stop hate. Their videos and broadcasts highlight and celebrate people who have developed creative anti-bias programs and responses. These stories have motivated many others to develop their own innovative initiatives which overpower the hateful actions and voices in their communities.
Our stories explore a wide range of issues including peace, tolerance, social justice and the environment. Odyssey is the nation's largest multi-faith media coalition with over 100 members, including faith groups, organizations and individuals
