in connecting/engaging youth to interfaith activism and dialogue.
I am currently working as the LEADD Coordinator, a national youth program on the Interfaith Alliance promoting active citizenship in a multi-faith society to high-school age youth! Previously, I worked as the Director of Youth Programs at Unitarian Universalist Church of Arlington, VA (UUCA) managing social justice, spiritual and service programs for 200 high-school and middle-school youth. While working at the UUCA I was also the consulting Program Manager for the Interfaith Youth Action Group (IYAG) an initiative of the non-profit 9/11 Unity Walk and ML Resources Social Vision which built on the previous works of the Tony Blair Faith Fellows. I have previously worked as the Campus Program Coordinator for the American Islamic Congress with a focus on creating a multicultural and interfaith student groups on college campuses called, Project Nur, in Washington DC and Boston, MA. My work was highlighted in the Wall Street Journal in an article she co-authored on the impact of Project Nur on Muslim students on college campuses across the East Coast. I have also worked as the Program Associate for Clergy Beyond Borders, an organization that aims to build bridges between clergy of different faiths and train them to promote religious pluralism. I have a M.S. in Conflict Analysis and Resolution from the School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution at George Mason University in Virginia.
I am currently co-authoring a national high-school curriculum on introducing anti-racism and social justice to teens called, Building a Beloved Community with the Unitarian Universalist Association.
In June 2012 I was elected to be a at large Board member of the InterFaith Conference of the Metropolitan Washington, DC.
