As a professor of world religions here in Phoenix, I have served on the board and in other leadership roles with the Arizona Interfaith Movement (AZIFM) for almost twenty years.
Currently, I serve on the Interfaith Council and help to connect AZIFM programming with universities and colleges across the state by growing our Speaker’s Bureau program for college classes and the public.
I have also moderated two large gatherings for Western Regional Interfaith Directors that included participation across nine states in the American West.
