Parliament of The World’s Religions – A Message from Fardosa Hassan

Screen Shot 2015-11-10 at 5.12.58 PMThe Parliament of the World’s Religions conference was an extraordinary opportunity for me, to be among ten thousand people around the world who are passionate about interfaith work. The Parliament of the World’s Religions brought interfaith leaders from differing racial and cultural backgrounds together, breaking down stereotypes and addressing prejudice. The greatest impact was for me to see those who serve youth investing considerable time in working shoulder-to-shoulder with youth from other faith traditions and cultures. Our youth will be the leaders of tomorrow and taking the time to invest in them is very important, as well as seeking to demonstrate a model for positively engaging young people with the reality of growing religious and cultural diversity in our community, and empowering a new generation of peace-makers to both lead now and throughout their lives. – Fardosa Hassan ’12, Muslim Student Advisor, Campus Ministries.
