In early February, Harvard University chaplains, staff, students, and faculty organized interfaith events on and around campus to celebrate World Interfaith Harmony Week, designated in 2011 as the first week of February by the United Nations. The Memorial Church and the Harvard Interfaith Collaborative welcomed Rami Nashashibi, Executive Director of Inner-City Muslim Action Network in Chicago, Illinois, to campus to speak on the spiritual legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The Pluralism Project hosted a film screening and discussion of Valarie Kaur’s film Divided We Fall. The week also included an interfaith arts festival, a panel discussing the "Contours of Common Ground" in interfaith work, and a service opportunity to alleviate hunger in Greater Boston.
