      InterFaith Works plans move to new building

      The Duck Race Against Racism may be the most visible project, but InterFaith Works runs lots of programs aimed at 'affirming dignity' in Onondaga County

      InterFaith Works is launching a fundraising campaign to buy its own home. For the first time, says Executive Director Beth Broadway, all its programs will be under one roof.

      Of those programs, the most visible is the Duck Race against Racism, a fun day fundraiser, staged yearly. But, year-round, says Broadway, InterFaith Works runs senior companion programs, a New Americans Refugee Resettlement outreach that helps over 500 refugees a year find new homes, as well as ongoing Community Dialogues against Racism, and Interfaith roundtables aimed at keeping representatives of all the area's religious groups connected.

      The annual InterFaith Leadership Award Dinner is set for Tuesday, April 30th at the SRC Arena. There's more information onthis years's 8 award winners (ages 71 to 97!) and the event at www.interfaitworkscny.org
