A diverse, welcoming community of open hearts and minds since 1948
I'm working on new blog I founded over the summer called the Interfaith Youth Activist www.interfaithyouthactivist.org, where I'm designing a program for youth bloggers from different religious and non-religious backgrounds to blog and share their faith journey and interfaith perspective! Over the course of being a blogger with IYA, the youth will get virtual lessons on blogging, social media, interfaith leadership training and connect with speakers from various faith/non-faith based orgs?
Take a look at it and let me know what you think! :)

Hence, it was shocking and devastating to hear about the Sikh…Continue

I'm sitting on our delayed flight home with our UUCA youth delegation in awe of the actions we took and the results we got in the last five days of the General Assembly. Not only was this one of the best GA's that I've been to, but it was probably the BEST way to introduce youth to a GA. It's social justice and action components are naturally attractive to the young millennials in our group. As a group we overcame our trials and tribulations, and discovered a powerful force within us to make…Continue
