Here's what's coming:
Monthly sessions beginning Sunday, February 27 (2:00 - 5:00 pm)
The Visionary Women program is a growing interfaith and intergenerational group of women who seek to increase their religious literacy while exploring their own identity as women of faith and social justice advocates.
Through this program, Interfaith Philadelphia strives to establish a supportive and collaborative community of diverse women who are committed to being advocates for social justice. By celebrating and exploring the faith traditions of others, as well as their own identities, participants are then empowered to act for equity in their own communities and beyond.
Each Tuesday, February 22 - March 29 (7:00 - 9:00 pm)
In this six-session, interactive community experience, participants will take time to explore their own stories and the influence of life, experience, culture, race, spirituality, and social context.
Shining a light on our own faith, race, and cultural stories can help us better understand our neighbor and overcome difference and separation. Cultivating a rich understanding of our unique identities helps us become more effective leaders, facilitators, and participants in all walks of life.
1-2 Sunday Afternoons per Month from February through May
