Sande Hart is a mother of two, community activist, organizational and project strategist, workshop producer and facilitator, and catalyst for a culture of collaboration, generosity, healing and harmony. Her passion for disrupting patterns of unhealthy communal behaviors and uncovering new solutions for old problems keeps her up at night.
After the events of 911, Sande woke up to a new understanding of the world and of her calling, and she began to gather women, forming the women’s interfaith organization SARAH (Spiritual And Religious Alliance for Hope) recently celebrating their 15th anniversary, and who have been reported in Harvard University’s Pluralism Report on The Women’s Interfaith Movement, and The Ford Foundation Report on Difficult Dialogues with her work at University of California Irvine. She’s also the Past President of the United Religions Initiative North America and ordained as an Honorary Interfaith Minister through All Paths Divinity School.
Sande is the Founding Director of the Charter For Compassion International Women and Girls sector and speaks locally and internationally on women and girls empowerment. She has conducted workshops around the world on a wide variety of topics, speaking to ages 9-99.
Most recently, Sande has joined an international team of peacemakers to develop the One Humanity Institute on the grounds of Auschwitz, a transformational educational center for advancing a culture of peace in partnership with the city of Oswiecim and the government of Poland.
Her numerous organizational and Board positions have instilled a value of shared leadership and have helped Sande develop a strong network of valued relationships and opportunities she considers, “extreme blessings”.
