Event description
Reflecting on how faith may have a positive impact on living in a racialized society.

About this Event

Program presented by the Interfaith Council of Metropolitan Washington, co-sponsored by Challenging Racism

The purpose of this program is to reflect on how faith may have a positive impact on living in a racialized society. Through a panel presentation, we will set the context for how racial issues are playing out in the DMV and why and how local faith communities are addressing these issues.

The program will consist of a panel presentation followed by small group interfaith table dialogues. The panel presentation will include an expert on how race/ethnicity impacts lives in the DMV and feature two speakers who are addressing racial issues in a faith-based context.

Panelists: Leah Hendey, Urban Institute; Rev. Dr. Carol Flett, Montgomery County Faith Leaders Council; Arlington VA faith representative TBD

You will come away from this program with greater awareness about the impacts of racism in the DMV and knowledge about local faith-based responses to racism. You will be inspired to reflect and act on these issues from your own experience and perspective.
