TOGETHER, we can create a positive social change more quickly!
La Convivencia strives to bring diverse groups of people together to get to know one another while serving the greater good of their community. In addition, attendees learn and practice the importance of the shared value of service rooted in all faiths and cultures. To that end, most of La Convivencia's events includes a service project for its participants.
