Eden Area Interfaith Council (EAIC)
The Eden Area Interfaith Council (EAIC) is an interfaith alliance that promotes understanding and respect for all faiths. Participants find common ground to work together to further human rights, peace, justice, civic change, and freedom of religion.
Starr King Unitarian Universalist Church helped found the EAIC shortly after the Al Qaeda attacks of September 11, 2001. Participants include members of diverse faiths, including Jews, Christians, Muslims, and Sikhs, as well as Unitarian Universalists. The EAIC welcomes participation of all people of goodwill whether they identify with a faith community or not.
By working together, and by reaching out to the wider community, participants counter misunderstanding and stereotyping of other groups.
In response to a 2015 bias attack at Lake Chabot Regional Park in Castro Valley, many members of Starr King Unitarian Universalist Church signed the letter of support shown below to the Bay Area Muslim Community. All five mosques in Hayward posted the letter on their bulletin boards. Text of letter.
