Better Together Day is a national movement, started by the Interfaith Youth Core, that helps to make interfaith cooperation a cultural norm on college campuses and beyond. More information below.

 

 

 

Pledge to wear blue on Thursday, April 10, to stand in solidarity with students across campus and across the country who advocate against religious intolerance.

 


This pledge is for everyone who believes that people of different religious and philosophical backgrounds are better off when they work together. On April 10th, the Kaufman Interfaith Institute is standing up for the idea that diverse religious and philosophical identities can be a force for good in the world. No matter what your faith or tradition is, you’re invited to voice your values and pledge to support this event and advocate for interfaith cooperation in your community. 

 

 

 


 

Take the pledge to at IFYC.org/BeBlue and put Grand Valley State University on the map of interfaith cooperation.
