“The World Religions & Spirituality Project (WRSP) was established in 2010 at Virginia Commonwealth University. The mission of the WRSP is to provide objective, reliable and comprehensive information about the world’s diverse array of religious and spiritual groups. The central feature of the WRSP website is, therefore, profiles of contemporary religious and spiritual movements, established world religions, and historical religious and spiritual movements. Wherever possible, profiles are prepared by scholars of record for the groups that they profile. Each profile includes a presentation of the group’s history, distinctive beliefs, rituals, organization and leadership, and issues/challenges.”

“The Golden Rule Project in Salt Lake City (USA) promotes the principle of the Golden Rule in schools and communities using story cards, posters, curriculum, bookmarks and tetraflexagons.”
An ICGR Affiliate is an organization that has goals similar to those of ICGR, and collaborates on programs and information about interfaith issues as approved by the ICGR board. Although an affiliate organization does not have a vote on the ICGR Board or at the annual meeting, Affiliates are represented by the Affiliates Chair-person on the ICGR Board. An affiliate organization receives the annual yearbook and monthly newsletter as a courtesy. Representatives of the Affiliate organization may join ICGR as individual members at large. ICGR has had the privilege of collaborating with our affiliates for such programs as the Family Peace Festival, our annual Legislative highlights review, First Freedom day and the Brotherhood/Sisterhood Youth Awards.
