Be Part of Better Together Week

Better Together is a national movement that brings together people of different religious and non-religious backgrounds to work toward a common goal. It’s for anyone who wants to share their values and learn something unforgettable about someone else’s. It doesn’t matter if you’re a student or not, religious or not. We can all use a little more inspiration these days.
