This event is part of Interfaith Philadelphia’s Year of Civil Conversations. In 2019, Interfaith Philadelphia will offer a series of public conversations that model the skills needed to navigate complex topics within critical relationships. We plan to highlight the nuance of topics, postures for listening, and transferable skills around navigating difference. Each conversation will feature a special moderator and featured guests engaging in provocative topics that are current, potentially divisive, and connected to the general theme of interfaith understanding.
