This is a collection of photos from the Interfaith Alliance’s LEADD (Leadership, Education Advancing Democracy and Diversity) youth leadership training I facilitated on May 19th at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Arlington, VA. We had 18 youth from diverse faith backgrounds present from the Northern Virginia, Washington DC and Maryland areas.
LEADD is an innovative project of the Interfaith Alliance, which aims to promote active citizenship in a multi-faith society to high-school age youth. Students who attend LEADD become immersed in the history of the First Amendment, particularly its Establishment and Free Exercise Clauses. The First Amendment is the foundation of America’s unique devotion to religious liberty and the hope in and vision for creating a truly pluralistic American society. Students learn about current policy, legislative and legal issues regarding religious freedom.
