INTERFAITH CITIZENSHIP - Houston, TX

Program Overview:

The Interfaith Citizenship Institute travels from the rural camp setting of Navasota, Texas to the urban center of Houston.

Participants engage in personal and group challenge activities and learn what local government, faith communities, and service providers are doing to tackle social and environmental issues.

Interfaith Citizenship participants engage in intensive writing workshops, learning about key issues surrounding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, dialogue sessions, and visits to community and governmental institutions exploring connections between peace, faith, and environment.
