Valarie Kaur, founder of Revolutionary Love, filmmaker, civil rights activist and Sikh interfaith leader, came to speak to students April 12 about the importance of interfaith engagement.

First speaking about her own experience with prejudice, she quoted Guru Nanak, the founder of the Sikh religion, “I see no stranger, I see no enemy.” This quote set the stage for her appeal to students, saying that the school is the future of revolutionary love.
