PURCHASE, N.Y. -- Manhattanville College is set to host Westchester's Diversity Breakfast from 7:45-10 a.m. Nov. 21.
Manhattanville College and the Duchesne Center will co-sponsor the breakfast, "which honors the diverse roots of America’s religious, community and political organizations, and their shared values, a celebration begun the year after the horrific events of Sept. 11, 2001," according to a release from the college. Representatives expect more than 100 organizations and county and state dignitaries to attend the breakfast.
The breakfast’s theme is “Building the Mosaic” and honors Geoffrey Anderson of Westchester Residential Opportunities, Sister Beth Dowd of Songcatchers, Inc. and Rabbi Amiel Wohl, co-founder of the Coalition for Mutual Respect and Rabbi Emeritus of Temple Israel of New Rochelle.
“We are proud to host this countywide event that embodies the college’s mission and values of being ethically and socially responsible in a global community,” said Father Wil Tyrrell, S.A., director of Manhattanville’s Duchesne Center for Religion and Social Justice, in the release. “We have students from 66 countries and 33 states who, despite their diverse origins, share common values, including provision of 30,000 hours of volunteer service to community groups each year."
