Venue: Online via Zoom
An Academic and Community Conference
Hosted by VST’s Inter-Religious Studies Program
The world is changing. Our politics, economics, climate, and health are under stress. Old social divisions are intensifying. New coalitions are forming. We’re examining the justice of relationships in and between community institutions. People of faith, along with others, feel called to take action. But what are best practices for activism, resistance, and change? How can our traditions and philosophies guide us? How should we critique and strengthen them?
Ms. Shachi Kurl, Angus Reid Institute
Roots Palestinian-Israeli Network
Plus papers and workshops by 40 academics and activists from multiple religious traditions and many countries of the world.
