Interfaith Leadership for the 21st Century

Primary tabs

What is the future of interfaith engagement in an increasingly diverse and politically polarized American society? What obstacles will religious and civic leaders face as the 21st century progresses? What steps should young people in Atlanta take to develop enduring and meaningful multifaith relations?
