How does our religious understanding of the world inform the ways we live and work together? Host Eboo Patel, founder and president of Interfaith America, speaks with a rotating guest list of civic leaders and bridgebuilders working in diverse sections of American civic life.

Interfaith America with Eboo Patel is inspired by the Islamic concept of “Deen and Dunya” — Faith and the World – which has anchored Eboo Patel’s approach to building Interfaith America, the nation’s premier civic organization focused on the positive engagement of religious diversity. Patel, a renowned interfaith leader, will be speaking with artists, intellectuals, civic leaders and politicians, people with beliefs that range from spiritualist to traditionalist, all in the hopes of illuminating the connection between cosmic visions and concrete social change.
