What is the purpose of National Faith & Blue Weekend?
The purpose of National Faith & Blue Weekend is to create safer, more inclusive communities by connecting law enforcement officers and the residents they protect and serve. National Faith & Blue Weekend will consist of activities that will occur in communities of every kind and will include a wide array of activities such as picnics, athletic events, forums, and community service projects. All activities will be designed to facilitate law enforcement officers and the public getting to know each other, and to build mutual understanding. We expect there will be activities in every state in the program’s inaugural year, and thousands of participants.
Who can participate in National Faith & Blue Weekend?
Anyone! The National Faith & Blue Weekend website enables visitors to download an activity planning toolkit, to register to host an activity, and to find an activity that is occurring nearby.
Are activities going to require you to participate in religious activities?
No. At their core, all Faith & Blue activities will be designed to facilitate connections between the public and law enforcement rather than endorse specific religious rituals. There will also be activities from a broad cross-section of houses of worship, ensuring that National Faith & Blue is open to the diversity of backgrounds that make up the United States.

Do I have to do one of the sample activities? Can I design my own?
