CMM is the greater Boston area’s oldest interfaith social justice network. Founded in 1966 by faith communities to address poverty, housing, and racial justice in Boston and to link urban and suburban congregations in just, transformative partnerships, CMM has tackled the most pressing issues facing our communities for 45 years, working to build Dr. King’s vision of Beloved Community for all citizens.
CMM runs the highly successful Interfaith Youth Initiative (IFYI) Summer Institute at Brandeis University, to which we have sent twelve Merrimack students on full scholarship, thanks to the Greve Foundation.
The AFR project offers ways to use psychological and spiritual approaches in reconciling conflicts among Jews, Christians, and Muslims in the United States. AFR emphasizes our shared values of compassion and justice, explores positive historical precedents, and acknowledges collective traumas. By providing resources for organizations in its network, AFR seeks to enhance the possibility of contrition and reconciliation among civil and religious representatives of the three Abrahamic traditions. AFR is a network of organizations bound together by the notion that all peoples seek and deserve dignity.
Our Center is a member of this international association of centers and institutes devoted to enhancing mutual understanding between Jews and Christians, and among the three Abrahamic faiths.
This institution is affilitated with The Peabody Institute Library’s Center for the Study of Human Rights.
