Executive Director, The Interfaith

Center of New York

Joining the Interfaith Center of New York in 2007, Chloe has helped implement ICNY’s mission to bring together grassroots religious leaders with civic officials to address the city’s most pressing social concerns.  New programs include Training Religious Leaders in Domestic Violence Prevention (2010) and Catholic-Muslim Community Development Initiative (2010) that gave rise to innovative programs in preventing domestic violence, sharing food pantry best protocols, and renovating houses of worship throughout the city. 

She has also initiated the James Parks Morton International Visiting Fellows that sent delegations of interfaith leaders to

New York City , Barcelona , Spain and Glasgow , Scotland to exchange best practices and encourage joint reflection between different religious communities and between these communities and civil society. In addition to existing partnerships with the New York Unified Court System, the New York Public Library, Catholic Charities of New York, and UJA Federation, ICNY has recently become part of the One NYC One Nation Initiative of the New York Community Trust and the Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs.

Chloe is an Episcopal Priest in the Diocese of New York, serving as Associate Minister at St. Mary’s Episcopal Church in

West Harlem . From 2000-2003, she founded and directed the Cathedral Forums on Religion and Public Life at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine. Following 9/11/2001, she worked with the Diocese of New York on an interfaith initiative to rebuild a mosque in Afghanistan destroyed by U.S. bombs and traveled to Afghanistan in 2003, 2004, and 2006 for two additional faith-based aid projects. 

A board member of Episcopalians for Global Reconciliation, Breyer has worked with the U.S. Campaign for the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) to raise awareness about the MDGs among American religious leaders of different traditions. Breyer’s publications include The Close: A Young Woman's First Year at Seminary (Basic Books 2000), along with chapters in What Can One Person Do? Faith to Heal a Broken World (Church Publishing 2005), and Challenging the Christian Right From the Heart of the Gospel (Beacon Press 2006).  Breyer has contributed to Slate Magazine <> and is working on her Ph.D. in Christian Ethics at Union Theological Seminary.
