Getting Started

There are many ways to support the ICJS. We appreciate the commitment the community has shown us, both financially and through program participation.

In today’s world the idea that all religions will one day live in harmony may seem like a dream. However, the ICJS has spent the past 25 years developing unique tools to push these boundaries, believing that our constitutions are actually improved by robust and lively debates about the controversies of our time.
