From the Charlottesville rally to the Tree of Life synagogue shooting, to the recent mass shootings in New Zealand and El Paso, to the escalating racist rhetoric of public figures, White Nationalism is on the rise. Confronting this toxic ideology is the moral responsibility of faith leaders, and it is a critical step to ending this crisis. Understanding how to speak to these issues is never easy, especially in diverse communities.
Episcopal Divinity School at Union Theological Seminary will offer Standing Up to White Nationalism: Preach, Teach and Proclaim in a Dangerous Time, an interfaith conversation with leaders from various religious traditions to explore the role of faith communities, on Wednesday, November 20 at 6:30 p.m. Panelists will share how they interpret sacred texts, and their process for writing and delivering sermons that address White Nationalism.
