Fellows

RPL Fellows are public leaders who collaborate with the RPL to further the public understanding of religion in within their particular vocation or profession. The RLP believes that religious literacy is essential not just for religious leaders or scholars of religion, but for everyone who participates in a diverse society. This includes those who are working to advance just peace in their particular context, and professionals in every field.
