Interfaith Cooperation in the Post 9/11 World: A Student Dialogue
Sunday, September 11, 4:30 pm, McKinnon E
Have you wondered if individuals can actually make a difference in these areas?
Are you interested in unpacking prejudices and creating a vision for a more just world?
If so, this is the event for you.
Elon Hillel will be sponsoring a dialogue about the post 9/11 world and what we can all do, as individuals, to rebuild a world without discrimination. This student-moderated discussion is open to anyone on campus with an interest in interfaith cooperation and bettering the next decade after 9/11. There will be light snacks and drinks provided.
Mason Sklut describes his interest in this topic as follows: "Tolerance is a life-long philosophy that I strongly believe is necessary in order for our society to survive. Having a sense of education is key for developing tolerance and having an understanding of others' backgrounds. Eboo Patel, the founder of the Interfaith Youth Core, once stated, "Diversity is a fact; religious pluralism is an achievement." Through programs like the Interfaith Cooperation in the Post 9/11 World: A Student Dialogue, we can actively engage in diversity to a positive end."
