We are thrilled to announce Reverend Jen Bailey and Lennon Flowers speaking together as our Collaboratory keynote.
Rev. Jen and Lennon broke through together, creating The People’s Supper, which builds trust and connection between people of different identities and perspectives through a shared meal. Since January 2017, The People’s Supper has hosted over 1,400 dinners in 121 communities across the United States. Bringing their background as social entrepreneurs, connection-makers, and community-builders, Rev. Jen and Lennon will invite our network to create “brave space” as we chart new paths in Jewish life.

She is also an ordained itinerant elder in the African Methodist Episcopal Church, and her writing appears regularly in publications including Sojourners and The Huffington Post.
