Named after the 13th-century Sufi philosopher-poet Mawlana Jalaladdin Rumi, the Rumi Forum for Interfaith Dialogue (RFID) promotes research, education, and debate that fosters interfaith dialogue and support for democracy and peace. The forum hosts a wide variety of events, including conferences, study trips to Turkey, working lunches, and lectures featuring ambassadors from around the world; event multimedia resources are available on the forum's website. It also awards annual RUMI Peace and Dialogue awards to individuals and organizations who have significantly contributed to building peace and interreligious understanding. In addition, the Rumi Forum publishes academic papers, newsletters, and statements on public events. The Rumi Forum is connected to the work of Fethullah Gulen and the Gulen movement and has chapters in five states.
