DC Young Adult Faith Leaders Summit


The DCYAFLS (now called the DC Interfaith Leadership Summit) is now a program of the InterFaith Conference of Metropolitan Washington. For complete info about this year’s summit, please visit the IFC website.

During 2013-2014, Faith in Action DC’s producer Jack Gordon acted as lead organizer for the DC Young Adult Faith Leaders Summit. Held during World Interfaith Harmony Week (first week of February), the summit is open to all DC area residents who are between their late-teens and late-30s and hold a position of leadership in their community. The purpose of this gathering is to provide a day of focused dialogue between young DC area leaders from a variety of faith traditions. The summit’s goal is to share resources and create a stronger network of allies across communities in order to more effectively serve and work for social justice in the region, and more broadly encourage interfaith understanding.
