2014 DC Young Adult Faith Leaders Summit

Location: Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, 5460 Western Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20815

DC area young leaders from various faith traditions met at a day-long summit to share resources and create a stronger network of local allies across communities in order to more effectively work for social justice in the region, and more broadly encourage interfaith understanding. Breakout sessions focused on faith and issues of race, food justice, interfaith dating and marriage, religious freedom, religious conversion, sustainable practices in places of worship, gender issues, and more.
Melody Fox Ahmed, assistant director for programs at the Berkley Center, led the session on interfaith dating and marriage. The summit was open to DC area residents who are between their late-teens and late-30s and hold a position of leadership in their community/organization.

The summit was sponsored by: the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs at Georgetown University; the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, DC 2nd Ward; Guru Gobind Singh Sikh Foundation; the InterFaith Conference of Metropolitan Washington; the Local Spiritual Assembly of the Baha'is of Washington, DC; the Office of Campus Ministry at Georgetown University; and Tikkun Leil Shabbat.
