CAIR-Chicago Hosts Multinational Interfaith Delegation with the U.S. State Department
On behalf of the U.S. Department of State, longtime partner WorldChicago invited CAIR-Chicago to host a delegation from 17 countries focused on interfaith, representing multiple roles and the Abrahamic traditions of Islam, Judaism and Christianity. The delegates are alumni of the U.S. State Department’s International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) under its initiative “Let Leaders Lead – IVLP Exchange Alumni Advance Interfaith Relations”.
CAIR-Chicago’s Outreach Coordinator Gerald Hankerson and Communications Coordinator Hannah Faris met with the delegation at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). Hankerson, a UIC alum, highlighted the university’s long history of interfaith engagement among its student body along with its community outreach efforts from its faculty and administration.
