Summaries

Summary Sentence: Diversity Week's Keynote Speaker: Eboo Patel, Founder and President of Interfaith Youth Core.

Full Summary: No summary paragraph submitted.

Eboo Patel's core belief is that religion is a bridge of cooperation rather than a barrier of division. He’s inspired to build this bridge by his faith as a Muslim, his Indian heritage, and his American citizenship. He has spoken about this vision at places like the TED conference, the Clinton Global Initiative, and the Nobel Peace Prize Forum, as well as college and university campuses across the country. This presentation is a part of the White House Initiative on Service and Interfaith.
