Race, Religion, and Social Justice Conference 2023

June 7, 2023 - June 8, 2023

Tri-Faith Initiative and the University of Nebraska at Omaha’s Department of Religious Studies invite you to the second annual Race, Religion, and Social Justice Conference on June 7-8 at the Tri-Faith Commons in Omaha.
This year’s theme is “Building Bridges of Hope.” Hope is not simply wishful thinking. Hope is an intentional, confident expectation that the social issues we are addressing ought to, and can, be overcome. This conference is making connections across differences – institutional differences, divided communities, and dissimilarities between individuals.
The conference will address intersections between race, religion, and social justice across different sectors of society. We invite multi-sector approaches — nonprofit and civic leaders, diversity, equity, access, and inclusion practitioners, community members, educators, physical and mental health practitioners, artists, religious communities, and scholars.
