The annual Dare to Understand Award honors community leaders of distinction. Recipients, through their actions, reflect the Center’s commitment to diversity and challenge barriers to understanding. With this award, we celebrate those who “dare to understand” in bold ways and applaud the courage it takes to cross lines of difference and work together for the common good.


This year, the Interfaith Center will recognize PECO, Jane Golden, and Husnaa Hashim for their dedication to spreading interfaith understanding throughout the Philadelphia region.
