Huntingdon – The second event of this year’s Diversity and Democracy series hosted by the Juniata College Office of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion will be a visit from author and speaker Sarah Quinter Malone of Interfaith Initiative Centre County. This event will take place from 4:30-6 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 25, in the Sill Boardroom within the von Liebig Center for Science at Juniata College. 

A resident of State College since 1986, Malone will present, “Serving God’s Beautiful Diversity,” and speak on the topic of becoming an effective ally. 

Malone is one of the founders of the Interfaith Initiative Centre County (IICC), a group created in 2010 for the express purpose of fostering compassion, charity, and goodwill, and building a healthy interfaith community by promoting respect, understanding, cooperation, and friendship among Centre County’s many faith communities and their individual members. United through their common humanity, members of the initiative bring their various experiences of spirituality and the divine together to build interfaith relationships. 

As an ordained minister within the Church of the Brethren, Malone earned graduate degrees from Penn State University and Northern Seminary. She has worked in pastoral ministry, church administration, prison ministry, and interfaith outreach for decades. 

Malone’s visit is a part of the Office of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion’s Diversity and Democracy series, which hosts events that present an opportunity to advance Juniata’s institutional goal of creating a campus community of inclusiveness from the classroom to the residence hall room to the conference room. Each event from the series is open to all members of both the Juniata and Huntingdon communities. To learn more, visit: www.juniata.edu/diversity.
