The mission of the Coalition for Mutual Respect is to improve human relations and understanding, while instilling respect for the different ethnicities and faiths of the richly cultured populations of New Rochelle and Westchester County. The diversity of the populace in New Rochelle has always been a source of pride and strength to our community. The Coalition encourages people of different backgrounds to maintain their individuality, to learn from one another, and to create a community stronger than any of its components. Annual events are the Interfaith Seder, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. dinner and service, and the Yitzhak Rabin Peacemaker Award presentation.
