Rebuilding Democracy from the Ground Up: Why People of Faith Matter

We would like to take a moment to thank everyone who put on and attended our Rebuilding Democracy series. With the support and handwork of many OTOC leaders and IPL educators, participants were able to learn about their important role as a citizen in relation to faith. Over the course of three months, we were able to reflect upon relationships within the community and how to positively effect change.
