Start a Cooperation Circle


A URI Cooperation Circle (CC) is a self-organizing group of at least seven members from at least three religions, spiritual expressions, or indigenous traditions—including atheists and agnostics. Cooperation Circles work on two levels: by giving people of different backgrounds a chance to work together, and by tackling important community issues their members care about.

URI adds new Cooperation Circles each month. Cooperation Circles are created by people who share a common vision: that our religious and spiritual lives, rather than divide us, can guide us to build community and respect for one another.  When you and your group create a Cooperation Circle you become part of an extraordinary force for good in the world.
