The Nauset Interfaith Association is a volunteer association of clergy and lay leaders of 24 member congregations on lower and outer Cape Cod. Our purpose is threefold: to deepen our understanding of each faith tradition represented; to provide mutual support and encouragement to each other; and to work together for the common good of our wider community, especially standing with the poor, oppressed and marginalized.
The Nauset Interfaith Association and its faith communities gather on the ancestral and often unceded homeland* of the Nauset and Monomoy people of the Wampanoag Nation. We recognize, honor, and support these neighbors who continue to care for this place and call it their home.
NIA Statement Against Antisemitism
The Nauset Interfaith Association condemns the incidents, threats and explicit expressions of antisemitism around the country. These actions are concerning and saddening, and we stand firm in denouncing hate and violence against the Jewish community. There is no place in our society for any form of antisemitism and hate speech.
We stand in solidarity with our Jewish brothers and sisters in opposition to antisemitism and will strive to make the Cape a safe and accepting place for all. As an organization we work to ensure justice and equality for people of all backgrounds, religions, ethnicities, identities and experiences.
We will continue to hold ourselves accountable to speak out against discrimination, racism and hate and to advocate for and effect change in furtherance of an equitable, peaceful and just future. We honor and hold sacred the dignity and humanity of all people.
