About Interfaith Atlanta (formerly known as FAMA)
Interfaith Coalition of Metro Atlanta was founded in 1992 with 16 diverse clergy. After 9/11, the organization led a major response to the 9/11 tragedy and became Faith Alliance of Metro Atlanta (FAMA) in 2003. In 2020, the organization rebranded itself as Interfaith Atlanta. Today, the organization has 16 board members representing multiple faiths and has a mission to promote understanding, respect, prayer, interaction, and unity among the diverse faiths in the greater Atlanta region and to advance the influence of voices of the faith communities for the common good. Interfaith Atlanta is an approved 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation.
About Interfaith Speakers Network (ISN)
Interfaith Speakers Network is a standing committee of Interfaith Atlanta that was originally an outgrowth of the Islamic Speakers Bureau (ISB). FAMA and ISB worked in partnership for several years in presenting overviews of the world's major faith traditions and answering questions. In 2020, Interfaith Atlanta assumed full responsibility for ISN. The committee's mission is to provide an educational program tailored to the audience’s needs, which highlights the central tenants of the world’s major faith traditions, revealing their commonalities and, by example, showing mutual respect for others’ faiths.
