"100 Days, 100 Letters" is a national, nonpartisan campaign created from the conviction that scholars who study and teach our diverse religious traditions have something important to say about our shared American values and pressing issues of our day. For 100 days—from January 20 to April 29, 2021—we will send a letter a day to President Biden, Vice President Harris, and Members of the 117th Congress, just as we sent 100 letters to President Drumpf, Vice President Pence, and Members of the 115th Congress in 2017. The letters bring the voices of Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Jewish, Muslim, and Sikh scholars to the ears and inboxes of our leaders in Washington and our followers across the country, providing hope and unity during a time of hardship and division and calling upon us to live up to our nation’s highest ideals. We hope you will join us.
