Atlanta Forum on Religion in the 2004 Elections
Religion has already played a larger role earlier in the 2004
presidential elections than anyone, including us, might have foreseen.
Yet none of us are surprised that religion is a major subject for
discussion in an election year.
Join The Interfaith Alliance Foundation, Interfaith Alliance of Georgia
and The Greater Atlanta Interfaith Alliance on September 8th for an
exciting forum where major national thought leaders will explore the
dynamics involved in the early and impassioned interest in religion in
the presidential primary season. We will also discuss "what does all
this mean" for the 2004 general election.
Panelists have an exceptional understanding of the importance of faith
in personal life and how faith can be used during the political season.
More details to come soon.

The Interfaith Alliance and The Interfaith Alliance Foundation are
national organizations with 150,000 members drawn from 70 different
religious traditions and 47 local Alliances across the country. Our
mission focuses on the intersection of religion and politics. Working
to see that religion plays a positive and healing role in the life of
the nation, we challenge those who would manipulate religion for
partisan political gain or manipulate politics for sectarian gain.
The Interfaith Alliance and The Interfaith Alliance Foundation's
election year program, One Nation, Many Faiths. Vote 2004 helps
candidates, voters, faith leaders, Houses of worship and the media
navigate the sometimes treacherous waters at the intersection of
religion and politics. The program also activates our 150,000 members
drawn from 70 faith traditions and 47 local Alliances to lead public
debates on religious liberty and to cast informed votes on Election Day.

Religion is part of ordinary life: the workplace, the worlds of friendly
interaction, the mall, the academy, the media, the gallery. But it takes
on special importance in the political realm. -- Martin Marty --
