Renowned scholar, activist, and author Eboo Patel, one of American’s most prominent interfaith leaders, will speak on the meaning of interfaith leadership during a time of global religious conflict to address how people of all faiths can work together to provide the building blocks for social and spiritual harmony. Patel is Founder and President of Interfaith Youth Core (IFYC) and is also a member of President Barack Obama’s Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships, assisting with policies on development of interfaith and community service. His work seeks to bring together youth of different faiths and educate them about religious diversity and collaboration.
Besides being an advocate for interfaith dialogue, Patel also stresses the importance of intrafaith discussions. In order to share his experiences as a Muslim and to encourage the building of a stronger community among fellow Muslims, he will engage in a dialogue after the lecture with members of the MSA about Muslim identity in a smaller setting.
