Religious Institute: a multifaith organization
Founded in 2001, the Religious Institute is a multifaith organization dedicated to advocating for sexual health, education and justice in faith communities and society. The Religious Institute has emerged as the national leadership organization working at the intersection of religion and sexuality issues. Our staff provide clergy, congregations and denominational bodies with technical assistance on addressing sexuality and reproductive issues, and assist sexual and reproductive health (SRH) organizations on addressing religious issues and developing outreach to faith communities. Our partners include the major SRH organizations as well as the leading mainstream and progressive religious institutions in the United States.
The Religious Institute is an affiliate of the Christian Community, a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization. The Religious Institute is supported by a growing number of foundation grants as well as contributions from individual donors, consulting projects, and publication sales.
