There is a limited in person, socially-distanced with even hosts and panelists at the Hyde Park United Methodist campus.

We will have representatives from the mainline Protestant, evangelical, Roman Catholic, Jewish and Muslim faith traditions, including:

– Pastor Glenn Dames with Allen Temple AME Church

– Pastor Christopher J. Harris with Crossover Church

– Rabbi Jason Rosenberg with Congregation Beth Am

– Deacon Scott Paine with St. Mark’s Catholic Church

– And a representative with Muslims For Democracy and Fairness – MDF

Our friend Pastor Justin LaRosa with Hyde Park United Methodist Church at the Portico will also be speaking and he and his church has been so kind to host us for this forum, which will be available to all virtually.

All major faith traditions speak of repairing the breach of injustice, healing historical wounds and building bridges of understanding. Our Equal Justice Initiative project speaks to these values. It is pivotal to discuss how efforts to better understand our painful history – and connect it to today’s injustices – are connected to our major faith traditions.
