The purpose of this gathering is to provide a day of focused dialogue among young DC area leaders from a variety of faith traditions (as well as those from multi-faith and no faith backgrounds) who are dedicated to building interfaith relationships with peers and allies. The summit is open to DC area residents, ages 18-39, who hold a position of responsibility in their community/organization. Our goal is to share resources and build a stronger network of local allies across communities in order to more effectively serve and work for social justice in the region, and more broadly encourage interfaith understanding. This annual gathering is held during World Interfaith Harmony Week (first week of February) and is supported by the IFC and a diverse set of local faith-based and interfaith organizations, educational institutions, and community groups. Highlights: - Over 200 participants from over two dozen faith traditions and communities throughout the region! - Workshops on topics such as racial justice, environmental stewardship, and more! - A resource fair featuring local and national organizations, programs, and communities! - Pre-events at houses of worship and community centers across DC!
