Multiregion's Relationship to the United Religions Initiative (URI)

Multiregion is one of eight administrative regions of the United Religions Initiative (URI), a grassroots, decentralized network for peace and social change that enhances local initiative through global connections. 

Seven of URI's regions are subdivisions of the globe: Africa, Asia, Europe, Middle East & North Africa, Latin America & the Caribbean, Southeast Asia & the Pacific, North America. The 8th region is global and is called the Multiregion. 

The Multiregion includes groups who either have members in more than one region or are focused on issues that are global in scope.
