Towards The Beloved Community: Town-hall on Race, Privilege and Inclusion


Join CAIR-Chicago and the Catholic Theological Union in a community town-hall discussing how, in today’s divisive political climate, the bonds between ethnicites, race, gender and religion are being challenged.

We as a community are witnessing the presence of policies fueled by seperation, racial tensions and fear.

Hate and fear as a foundation for policies do not exist in a vacuum. The foundations of these sentiments can be found within our own communities. How do we confront the challenges of privilege, push back on demographic change and the deliberate inclusion of diversity? Join us for a honest discussion on how we as a collective community respond to these challenges in order to create the “Beloved Community” we have the potential to become.
