Welcome to our Web site
The Interfaith Alliance Hawai‘i (TIAH) has risen to be a voice for justice in our state. It is an organization of individuals that speak from the perspectives of over 30 faith-based traditions. TIAH is designed to create an environment in which many people and groups of good will can come together to address public concerns.
TIAH is a chapter of the national group located in Washington, D.C. that is honored to have received a mantel of support from the former Hawai‘i Council of Churches.
In addition to the Executive Committee, TIAH has a diverse 25-member Board of Directors, representing many religious traditions and community groups. Also, an Advisory Council of distinguished religious leaders has been formed with the purpose of providing wisdom and counsel. The momentum of TIAH is dynamic and exciting.
Together, this uniting of diversity aims to provide a meaningful place of respect, understanding, and harmony in our land of aloha!

We can never win unless we open our hearts to connecting with people who appear to be very different from us.
To remain indifferent to the challenges
we face is indefensible.

The Politics of Compassion
We are pleased to have community leader, activist, educator, and artist Keiko Bonk join us and share her vision of a more sustainable Island home for us all. Keiko's life-long service within our community embodies compassion in action, where she has staunchly supported causes to protect the rights of individuals and also our fragile environment from exploitation and degradation by multi-national corporate interests. Keiko's energetic and enthusiastic work towards cultivating more compassion in our Islands is truly inspiring and interfaith-affirming. Please join us!
