Eboo Patel, Tuesday, April 4, 2017, 8:45 a.m., GPAH

April 4 @ 8:45 am - 9:45 am

“The question of how people orient around religion differently, or interact with one another, whether that be based on conflict or cooperation, will be one of the most engaging questions of the 21st century.”  Eboo Patel

With daily news of fracturing communities throughout the country, our  spring PA speaker Eboo Patel brings a vision of cooperation and inclusion. He is founder of the Interfaith Youth Core, dedicated to showing how religion can be a bridge of cooperation rather than a barrier of division.  Patel served on Obama’s inaugural faith council, has been named one of America’s Best Leaders by US News & World Report, and is a regular contributor to The Huffington Post, The Washington Post, NPR, and the Chronicle of Higher Ed, has spoken at TED conferences and at the Nobel Peace Prize Forum.

He joins us to celebrate the importance of educated and respectful communities, and will be speaking about his experiences, the need to make interfaith cooperation a social norm, and his books,  Acts of Faith, Sacred Ground, and Interfaith Leadership:  A Primer. RSVPs are strongly encouraged.  Copies of his books, Interfaith Leadership and Sacred Grove, may also be reserved via the RSVP link.

Questions?  Contact Christine Henry.
