Every year, Northeast Tennessee Chapter URI Cooperation Circle (CC) holds an annual interfaith Thanksgiving dinner called the Gratitude Dinner. Almost 90 people attend these dinners of Hindu, Muslim, Wiccan, Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, and Native American faiths and traditions. Members dance the Dance of Universal Peace with joy and wonderment of all that is. They gather together Hindu, Muslim, and Buddhist people for discussion, mutual learning and knowledge.
