SCUPE, in partnership with the Parliament of the World’s Religions is offering a one-day long workshop on Wednesday, May 22nd to address this question.
Tio Hardiman, director Cure Violence and Ceasefire, Rabbi Joel Mosbacher who’s work on gun legislation was recently featured in the New York Times, and Imam Abdul Malik Mujahid, the chair of the Board of Trustees of the Parliament of the World’s Religions will be the featured speakers.
In this workshop we will:
• Share stories of how we have been touched by violence.
• Explore how our faith traditions may legitimize violence.
• Build partnerships with other leaders touched by violence.
• Learn strategies for dealing with the aftermath of violence.
• Commit to bold actions for peace in and across our communities
The workshop is meant for clergy, lay leaders and professionals in the field. As in all SCUPE events, the expertise and the perspectives of the participants is sought and valued, and dialogical learning from each other, encouraged.
