In April 2007 the Berkley Center convened a consultation of scholars and practitioners at Georgetown University to take stock of the wide range of ongoing work by North American organizations that are, in varying ways, inspired by religious faith, and to explore the policy implications of their work. The consultation led to the publication of a report outlining critical actors, best practices, and ways forward.
