During Children’s Interfaith Weekend faith communities across Monroe County dedicate time to hold children in prayer or intention and take action on their behalf at worship services or special events.
We are inspired by sacred texts and teachings. We advocate for effective policies and solutions for the health, education and success of children. We are especially committed to children who are vulnerable because of poverty, racism, health inequities and trauma.
