In the midst of these difficult times, Interfaith Philadelphia is doing what it does best, building relationships and connections across even the most challenging barriers. That's why we have created this periodically-updated Interfaith Resource Guide of the virtual worship services, classes, reflections, best practices, workshops, counseling opportunities, and more that religious leaders and communities throughout the region are offering. Read on for more, including a section with resources on anti-racist advocacy and learning.
Click an image to jump down to that resource section. This page will continue to be updated periodically. If you'd like to add a resource, click here.
