Interfaith Storytelling for a Vibrant Democracy

Engaging the Diverse, the Devout, and the "Nones"

Undergraduate Leadership Conference
February 23-24, 2018
University of St. Thomas

News headlines and social media posts show the U.S. a divided nation, and religion is one of the fault lines. The divisions surface between practitioners of different religious traditions, within religious traditions, and between the religious and non-religious. One  way to heal these rifts is equipping ourselves to tell our own stories and learn to listen to  the stories of others with clarity, charity, and hospitality. This conference will provide  training in, and a forum for, storytelling and story-listening across differences in core  commitments. Students from all perspectives and institutions are invited to attend and to  refine their skills in dialogue on their campuses and in their wider communities

Open to all undergraduates

Cost: $5 thanks to the generous donation of USG
