Better Together Days is a national program of the Interfaith Youth Core that brings colleges and universities together for a week of Interfaith collaboration and dialogue. The Office of Religious and Spiritual Life (ORSL) has put together a series of conversations to engage the campus community on interfaith collaboration and dialogue. Whether you identify as religious, non-religious or somewhere else on the spectrum we hope there is something for you!

As part of this week, ORSL, the Center for IDEAS and Hillel at IC is hosting Yavilah McCoy, the CEO of DIMENSIONS Inc, who has spent the past 20 years working extensively to engage issues of diversity, equity and inclusion as a Jewish woman of color, educator, and anti-racism activist.
