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. We won’t make peace by plugging our ears and yelling louder than the other guys. We need to listen. We need to share. We need to serve. 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.
We will engage in social justice and interfaith dialogue by taking part in a conference-wide service project. In smaller community groups, we will share our own perspectives and process the conference experience. Students will share their expertise by leading breakout sessions pertaining to this year's theme of storytelling. Other events within the conference will offer time to share music, stories, and delicious local Halal and Kosher food.
The Ripple Conference offers a balance of structured and unstructured, small and large group events to provide a unique conference experience.
We don’t just want to talk about interfaith, we want to make it happen. Where will your ripples go?
