“For centuries people thought that the identity that would most rip a nation apart was religious identity… Again, the United State of America is the first nation to proves that you can actually have a religiously diverse democracy.” – Eboo Patel at the March 16, 2022 Leadership Council Meeting
Convergence CEO David Eisner interviewed Eboo Patel, author, speaker, educator, and interfaith leader founded Interfaith Youth Core (IFYC).
Eboo Patel spoke about the idea that religion should be a bridge of cooperation rather than a barrier of division. He is inspired to build this bridge by his identity as an American Muslim navigating a religiously diverse social landscape. For over 15 years, he has worked with governments, social sector organizations, and college and university campuses to help make interfaith cooperation a social norm. Learn about IFYC’s inspiring work and perspective and the multiple ways that IFYC and Convergence are now partnering with a special preview of Eboo Patel’s upcoming book,“We Need to Build: Field Notes for Diverse Democracy.”
