Ripple Interfaith Conference: Finding Your Voice

In United States of America by zeinab

The Ripple Conference is a student-led interfaith initiative that empowers and inspires interfaith student leaders. A lot has happened in our nation and world since we began crafting Ripple’s 2019 theme of “Finding Your Voice: Interfaith and Storytelling.” Now, more than ever, we need to learn to engage respectfully across differences and build relationships with people who are different from us.

And the power of storytelling can go a long way toward reconciliation. The Ripple Conference offers time to learn, engage, reflect, and share. Together we will learn about other traditions, including religious, spiritual, and secular worldviews.

This American Moment: Bridging Religious Divides with Interfaith Youth Core What can faith teach us about bringing people together in an era of increasing polarization? Throughout our nation’s history, the times when we have been the most divided have also been the times when faith leaders have crossed this divide to show us the way, from activist Rabbi Abraham Joshua Herschel marching arm-in-arm with the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King in Selma, to American Muslims raising records amount of money to repair vandalized headstones in Jewish cemeteries in St. Louis and Philadelphia.  On February 23, join us for an evening that examines how we can build bridges amongst people of different backgrounds within our own communities and beyond. We’ll be joined by Rev.

WE ARE ONE Vigil / Rally

In United States of America by zeinab

Join Us to Stand Up for DREAMERS Dreamers grew up in America. These young people are Americans in their heats & minds, but not on paper. They were brought to this country by their parents, some even as infants. This is their home. The DACA program will be phased out starting March 5th, unless Congress replaces it with similar legislation. Dreamers have much to contribute to our country & should be allowed to stay. We recognize all people as equal and sacred. We reject racism, bigotry and hatred and denounce violence in any form by anyone. We call on all people of good will to work together for the common good and honor the contributions of all individuals. We believe our differences enrich us, rather than divide us. Peaceful, compassionate, non-partisan signs are welcome. “Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.” – Harriet Tubman

Interfaith Contemplative Meeting

The group is purposefully designed to focus on personal experience and inter-personal relationships rather than institutionalized theology and doctrine. We begin our gatherings in contemplative practice, with 20 minutes of silence. We then engage in discussion on the personal spirituality of our participants, or a topic that allows us to share experiences from each other’s faith.

We need to start healing, reconnecting with people outside of our own social, religious and cultural circles. It feels like people are more divided today than ever. Public discourse has become ever more divisive, and too many of us have become isolated within small groups of people who are most like us.

Under One Sky: The 26th Annual Interfaith Intercultural Breakfast

In United States of America by zeinab

Luis J. Rodriguez, Award-winning Poet, Activist and Los Angeles Poet Laureate Announced as 2017 Breakfast Speaker Luis Rodriguez is convinced that a writer can change the world.

Achieving success as an award-winning Chicano poet, he was sure the streets would haunt him no more — until his young son joined a gang himself. Rodriguez fought for his child by telling his own story in the bestseller Always Running: La Vida Loca, Gang Days in L.A., a vivid memoir that explores the motivation of gang life and cautions against the death and destruction that inevitably claim its participants.
