Please read through for information on the SevenDays events taking place the week of April 18 – April 24. If you are new to The J and are not aware, SevenDays is an organization started by Mindy Corporon that promotes interfaith dialogue by engaging all people to discover commonalities and overcome evil with acts of kindness.
