Marci McPhee attends Interfaith Youth Core Conference

Marci McPhee, center assistant director, participated in the third annual conference of the Interfaith Youth Core (IFYC) at DePaul University in Chicago, Illinois from May 16 to 17, 2005. She attended the conference with Brandeis Religious, Pluralism, and Spirituality Group (RPS) President Gayle Gordon thanks to funding from the Ansara Foundation.

The work of the IFYC is to bring together religiously diverse youth to design and perform service projects. Since service is a shared value among all faith traditions, working to improve the community is a way of coming together to "make war on social ills instead of each other," according to founder and president Dr. Eboo Patel.
