Hoosiers of Many Faiths in Community

Community Youth Forum at the 2018 Festival of Faiths

More than 20 high schoolers (plus a few parents) were part of a Community Youth Forum. The conversation included mostly young Hindu women, Turkish Muslims, and members of Bridge, Park Tudor High School’s interfaith club. It was a fascinating experience for all. A point on which all agreed: we need to do this again, with more young people and even more diversity. In the spring CIC is partnered with the Desmond Tutu Peace Lab to help support high school students who want to lead their peers on Sacred Spaces Tours of their places of worship. At the Youth Forum, participants offered to lead groups through the Hindu Temple of Central Indiana and al-Huda Mosque.
