ABOUT THE CONVERSATION
America has entered an era of sweeping political and cultural change. In ways we can anticipate or barely conceive - what will be different? The question has urgent meaning for people of faith - particularly those whose social justice activism is grounded in theology, and especially when entire religions are viewed with suspicion.
What is the historical and spiritual context of our current situation? As we look toward the world we want to create, what are the commitments we must make, individually and collectively, to achieve it? What can we learn from other occasions throughout history when we have come together as people fired by faith to advance the cause of human justice?
Join us for a conversation on the issues with five religious leaders and thinkers, followed by an audience Q&A. The night will begin with a performance by mezzo soprano/actress Alicia Hall Moran.
