A year and a half after her wedding to investment banker Marc Mezvinsky, Chelsea Clinton is keeping busy. In addition to her work for the Clinton Foundation and the Clinton Global Initiative, she’s also serving as a correspondent for NBC and pursuing her doctoral degree in public service.

And last night, Clinton headed to New York City’s Upper West Side to moderate a discussion between Rabbi Marc Schneier, founder and president of the Foundation for Ethnic Understanding, and Imam Shamsi Ali, leader of the Islamic Cultural Center of New York.

The JCC in Manhattan event, framed as a conversation about Islamic relations, was titled “Combating Islamophobia.”
