About Eboo Patel
Eboo Patel is a member of President Barack Obama's inaugural
Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships whose
core belief is that religion is a bridge of cooperation rather than
a barrier of division. He is inspired to build this bridge by his
faith as a Muslim, his Indian heritage, and his American
citizenship. He has spoken about this vision at places like the TED
conference, the Clinton Global Initiative, and the Nobel Peace
Prize Forum, as well as college and university campuses across the
country. Patel has written two books about interfaith cooperation,
"Acts of Faith" and "Sacred Ground."
