Crisely Melecio-Zambrano and Debora Green are part of the L'Arche community of greater Washington DC and will be speaking about the importance of community. L’Arche is an inter-denominational Christian community that welcomes people of all backgrounds to share life together. Community life is centered around four communal homes and the 16 members who have intellectual disabilities, known as “core people.” Each community member is encouraged to discover and deepen his or her spiritual life and live it according to his or her particular faith and tradition. Those who have no religious affiliation are also welcomed and respected in their freedom of conscience.
Debora Green is one of the core members and Crisely is a live-in assistant and the home life leader in her community. Crisely will give an introduction of L'Arche and then will do Q&A format with Debora, asking her questions about community and her experiences living at L'Arche.
