The purpose of this gathering is to provide a day of focused dialogue among young DC area leaders from a variety of faith traditions (as well as those from multi-faith and no faith backgrounds) who are dedicated to building interfaith relationships with peers and allies. The summit is open to DC area residents, ages 18-39, who hold a position of responsibility in their community/organization. Our goal is to share resources and build a stronger network of local allies across communities in order to more effectively serve and work for social justice in the region, and more broadly encourage interfaith understanding.

This annual gathering is supported by the IFC and a diverse set of local faith-based and interfaith organizations, educational institutions, and community groups.

The 2017 DC Interfaith Leadership Summit will be held Sunday, January 29th, 2017 at Howard University’s School of Divinity in Van Ness.
