The 2017 Dare to Understand Awards


On March 7, over 700 people from the Philadelphia region gathered in the Sanctuary of Bryn Mawr Presbyterian Church to hear from founder and president of Interfaith Youth Core, Eboo Patel.

Patel, who recently authored his third book, Interfaith Leadership, spoke eloquently about the deep ethic of interfaith cooperation that compels citizens of this American Democracy to build bridges with people of difference. The Interfaith Center awarded Patel with our Annual Dare to Understand Award, honoring individuals of distinction who courageously cross lines of difference and work together for the common good.
