Norfolk Interfaith Lecture Series, Religion and Social Justice
Norfolk Interfaith Lecture Series: Religion and Social Justice
organizeb by Rumi Forum & CNU Department of Philosophy & Religious Studies
This panel will explore what faith traditions believe in relation to social justice and what ways they have found to express or implement social justice. Our distinguished panelists will discuss how the major faith traditions (Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism) differ in their approaches to social justice; how these traditions promote social justice; what movements they support; and how they are making a difference in their respective communities and in the community of the "Other."
