On Sept. 11, members of Clergy Beyond Borders took off and traveled as far as Tennessee and Michigan in an effort to bring together members of different faiths and to combat stereotyping. The group, which included imams, rabbis and pastors, ended their caravan across the east coast in Maryland.
Imam Abdullah Entepli says many religions have been by hijacked by extremists so it's important for moderate voices to speak out and come together.
"I think it is beyond important," says Entepli. "I think it is urgently needed, a faith-based voice of reconciliation healing and unity in at a time where religion is often being used as a divisive force. Where religion has been a force of division, hate, exclusivity, throwing borders. This is an authentic voice people who are deeply rooted in their faith tradition."
The group urged local faith leaders across the United States to spend more time interacting with neighboring churches, synagogues and mosques.
