PANEL: Race in Sacred Spaces: How Racial Inequities Have Shaped America’s Religious Landscape

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

George Floyd’s death sparked a national reckoning with racism—and (this time) religious groups were not exempt. Our panelists will talk about the creativity and resilience of minority religious groups as they navigate through the coronavirus pandemic, which has amplified racial inequities, and a national conversation about systemic racism. They will also address how faith communities are playing a part in helping bridge inequities.
