Auburn brings together religious leaders of Jewish, Christian, Muslim and other faiths to advance their leadership skills, raise their visibility, and work across religious divides on the key social justice issues of our time. The program takes its inspiration from the successes of the civil rights movement. Participants include Rabbi Sharon Brous from Los Angeles; Reverend Gene Robinson, the first openly Gay Bishop in the Episcopal Church; and the Reverend William Barber, founder of the “Moral Mondays” Civil Rights protests in North Carolina.
