The Project Peace Speaker Series is pleased to partner with local agencies and faith based groups, to discuss how the ideas of race and faith intersect in the East Bay. How can we as people of faith engage in this topic and be a part of a community-wide solution? How do we as citizens and people of faith work together with the broader community? How can we live out our faith as it relates to race?

We will explore this topic with a featured keynote by Dr. Mark Labberton and Pastor Michael McBride followed by a panel discussion and exhibitors’ fair.

Our hope for the evening is to contribute to the larger conversation around the restoration of our city by strengthening our faith and our communities.
