Date: 23rd September 2021

Time: 19:00 - 21:00

Join us for our panel discussion and Q&A as we look at what it means to be a person of faith when it comes to issues of racial justice. 

  • Thursday 23 September 7-9pm
  • Zoom webinar | BSL interpreted

The panel will be discussing questions including, do people of faith have a duty to respond to racial injustice, and in what ways can faith provide a space where people can come together to share and heal? They will also be reflecting on how their own faith has influenced their response to events and movements such as Black Lives Matter.

The panel discussion will be followed by a question and answer session.
