The Aspen Institute: Inclusive America Project

The Aspen Institute's Inclusive America Project was launched in 2012 and is a high-level nonpartisan project focusing on five key sectors: youth development organizations, higher education, media, religiously affiliated organizations, and government agencies.

Why We Invested

The Aspen Institute’s Justice & Society Program believes that an inclusive American will possess basic religious literacy, an appreciation of the First Amendment value of free religious exercise, and an ability to respond to incidents of violence in a resilient way. As part of this Justice & Society Program, the Inclusive America Project is a nonpartisan project focusing on enhancing religious pluralism through publications highlighting best practices and thought leadership, convenings that foster innovative collaborations and alliances, and thoughtful leveraging of existing relationships to avert negative developments in a tumultuous political moment.

The Inclusive America Project is conducting a landscape analysis of the religious pluralism funding field and sharing the findings to inform the field and the public.
