Why are you involved in interfaith work?
I joined the Interfaith Values Fellows because I wanted to help foster a space on our campus in which individuals from secular, religious, and spiritual backgrounds can come together and be appreciated for their differences and their similarities.

I am inspired by the words of Jerry Zehr, author of The Peacemaker's Path: "There is a commonality in our faith traditions that can help us turn away from polarization and re-create a greater sense of community in which our differences are honored."
