Interfaith dialogue could be the key to ensuring a stable, productive future for all Americans. Come find out how.


Despite being founded on the principals of religious freedom, America hasn't always been a hospitable environment for communities of faith. The intolerance and suspicion experienced by Catholics in the 19th century has parallels to what Muslims experience today. Can interfaith dialogue and service build meaningful bridges between communities and enlive one's faith? Join Rhodes scholar, award-winning author and interfaith leader Eboo Patel and Fr. James Heft for a conversation on faith, intolerance, and interfaith leadership, moderated by Varun Soni, USC Dean of Religious Life.
