On February 15, 2003 the Dallas Morning News reported that members of the Interfaith Center of Dallas have started an interfaith coffeehouse called "'Brewing Community with Every Cup'" to help people from different religious traditions meet and learn about each other's faiths. Judy Arkow, head of the nonprofit group, stated, "'Once you make friends with someone from another culture or another faith tradition' it's hard to hear degrading remarks about other groups without having a different perspective. The center also holds monthly dinners where speakers discuss their religious or faith tradition."
