Tikkun Olam Keynote: “In This Together: A conversation about why and how people of faith are pursuing racial justice in the 21st century”

  • Orlando World Center Marriot 8701 World Center Drive Orlando, Florida (map)

Half a century after the Civil Rights and Voting Rights acts were passed, a new civil rights movement is building in America. Reform Jews are once again partnering across race, class and faith lines in pursuit of equal rights and access to opportunities. Join African Methodist Episcopal Reverend Jennifer Bailey, founder of the Faith Matters Network, with Rabbi Stephanie Kolin and other Reform Movement leaders in a conversation about what this moment in American history requires of American citizens and people of faith.

This session is the Tikkun Olam Keynote at the 2015 Union for Reform Judaism's Biennial Convening.
