Valarie will also present a workshop on Wednesday about her Revolutionary Love project. Wednesday's conference will also be the debut of an Interfaith Freedom Seder, a video project of community faith leaders using the model of the Jewish Passover Seder to examine issues of freedom and oppression today.
