What is Interfaith Atlanta



New Name. Same Commitments.

Interfaith Atlanta was formerly known as Faith Alliance of Metro Atlanta (FAMA). It underwent a name change in 2021.


Our Mission

To promote understanding, respect, prayer, interaction and unity among the diverse faiths in the greater Atlanta region, and to advance the influence of voices of the faith communities for the common good.


Our Goals

In addition, upon request, we provide trained panelists to present at a variety of venue areas through our Interfaith Speakers Network of Atlanta.
