Building Unity Award

For outstanding contributions to interfaith understanding and cooperation

This award is given in recognition of an individual’s outstanding involvement in interfaith work in the greater Sacramento area.

It is given to a person who has consistently worked to bring about greater understanding and respect within the faith community and to bring the faith community together to serve others.

The recipient exemplifies the highest qualities of his or her own faith tradition, and the shared goals of building a society marked by compassion, peace, justice and concern for a sustainable world.

To be eligible for this award, a person must live in the four-county greater Sacramento area, and can only be nominated by a member of another faith group. The recipient is selected by a panel of three board members from the Interfaith Service Bureau and two board members from the Building Unity project.
