For me, authentic interfaith engagement affirms my faith in humanity. If we approach interfaith community building with curiosity and humility, it can be transformative. I believe that it is an essential tool to help overcome many of the challenges we face in the modern era. It is also fun and very enriching!

My name is Abbygail Parker. I am the program director for the AmeriCorps program, the Interfaith Enrichment Corps at the Center for Interfaith Cooperation. While I have only been organizing the program for a few short months, I have truly enjoyed coming back to the CIC prior to my own AmeriCorps VISTA engagement a couple of years ago!

I believe that faith is the language of the soul. Through interfaith work, we can connect with our community at the deepest level in order to bring about social change. This is why I believe in the Center for Interfaith Cooperation and the Interfaith Enrichment Corps. I am focusing on the Interfaith Coalition for Mental Health.
