An Interfaith Call to Inclusion brought together the leaders of faith-based organizations in Portland, Oregon post-election, beginning with a rally in Portland's Pioneer Square on November 10th, 2016. It was a calling together of Muslim, Jewish, Christian, Sikh, Buddhist and First Nations faith leaders to continue the work for creating the Beloved Community. Subsequent meetings of this leadership group provided an opportunity to interview some of them on the aftershock of the election and the effects on their communities and social justice work. The Portland Interfaith Clergy Resistance is an outgrowth of the Interfaith Call to Inclusion and remains active (2020).

Interfaith Call to Inclusion and Gathering November 10 Portland
Published on Nov 15, 2016
Short video on the rally called by members of an Interfaith Alliance supported by Rev. Michael Ellick and Rev. Elizabeth Simson Durant of the First Congregational United Church of Christ.
The gathering was held on November 10th at Pioneer Square in Downtown Portland. Leaders and members from a wide variety of faith communities were called together to "stand against the legitimization and normalization of bullying, name calling, threats of deportation, building walls, and ‘privileged’ behavior that is celebrated and without consequence. We are standing for peace and seek to build bridges to make a better and more ‘beloved community."
