The Office of Religious Affairs will cultivate policies that engage community and faith-based organizations in the creation of citywide programs and initiatives across multiple disciplines. The Office of Religious affairs will also seek to establish and coordinate effective collaborations between District of Columbia government agencies and the faith community in addressing citywide issues.
In addition, the Office of Religious Affairs will collaborate with the Mayor's Interfaith Council to provide outside input into partnerships and other issues of concern to the religious community.
The common thread in all beliefs is that we are our brother’s keeper and that we are to show compassion, concern and care for our fellow humans. In recognition of this fact the Mayor’s Office of Religious Affairs is committed to increasing the involvement of the faith community in alignment with the goals of this administration to create pathways to the middle class.
