Remarks at the Launch of the Office for Engagement with Faith-Based Communities

posted on August 7, 2013

Secretary of State John Kerry, alongside Shaun Casey who will head the initiative, announced the launch of the Office for Engagement With Faith-Based Communities on Wednesday. Kerry said, “Its mission is as clear as it is compelling: It is to engage more closely with faith communities around the world, with the belief that we need to partner with them to solve global challenges.” Casey added, “As religious leaders and faith communities shape their environments, they also have an influence and shape our own foreign policy concerns here in the United States. It’s essential for the United States to understand them and to bring them into our diplomacy.”
