"Interfaith Leadership: Building a Healthy Democracy"
In an increasingly pluralistic society, how do we build robust and creative interfaith spaces that serve both the religious and non-religious? What knowledge base and skills do we need to ensure that religious and non-religious identities are a bridge and not a barrier in this work? Eboo Patel, Founder and President of Interfaith Youth Core, will address the best practices of effective interfaith leadership: the ability to voice values, engage diversity, and act on behalf of the common good.

When: Wednesday, May 13, 2015, 7:00 p.m.
Where: Goucher College, Kraushaar Auditorium
Cost: This event is free and open to the public
