Interfaith Events

The annual Dialogue & Friendship Dinner promotes mutual understanding, respect and cooperation among people of diverse faiths and cultures in Greater Kansas City area. Since 2003, the dinner has served as a way to bridge the leadership of The Dialogue Kansas City in collaboration with the Division of Diversity and Inclusion, UMKC’s Turkish Student Association and International Dialogue Student Association, along with others on our campus and in our greater community.


To Light A Candle, a film by Maziar Bahari, highlights the historic and current struggle of members of the Baha’i faith. The Division of Diversity and Inclusion along with the UMKC School of Education, Libraries, Student Government Association, Multicultural Student Organizations Council, as well as, Dialogue Institute Southwest were proud to feature the film as part of a community film screening including a Q&A session with distinguished guests. See the film trailer and learn more about the #Educationisnotacrime campaign here.
