Why Interfaith?:  It’s important that we provide opportunities for the children in our communities to learn about their neighbors. Knowledge and understanding will lead to more peaceful communities!
How you can be a Partner: Organize the members of your church or faith community to join with a community of another religious background for worship or community service. Spend time getting to know people of a different faith.
Background/How did you get to where you are today?: Master of Arts from Claremont School of Theology in Interreligious Education. I have worked with the USC Office of Religious Life, The United Methodist Urban Foundation, First UMC Los Angeles and New Vision Partners.
