Better Together is a national student driven campaign for interfaith action. On Westminster Campus, the Better Together Campaign is mobilizing college students to voice their values, engage with others, and act together to make the world a better place for everyone. Participating in The Better Together campaign will give you the opportunity to take a stand for interfaith cooperation while you impact social issues you care about deeply. Through interfaith action, college students everywhere will prove that we are better together and tell a different, positive story of young people from different religious and non-religious backgrounds taking action together.
