The InterFaith Alliance was founded on October 17, 2012 when Fr. Arturo Bañuelas called together a diverse group of faith leaders within El Paso & Southern New Mexico who agreed to gather regularly to dialogue and learn from each other.

From 2012 until 2015,  Larry Bach and Deborah Clugy-Soto co-chaired the alliance.

When Larry moved away from El Paso in 2015, Deborah assumed the leadership as chair.  During these years several city-wide prayer vigils were held, along with other community and youth events.

In 2020 the alliance was incorporated, elected it's first Council and in 2022 it secured it's non-profit status.
