Our Compelling Interests: Out of Many Faiths. Religious Diversity and the American Promise
Our Compelling Interests: Out of Many Faiths
A Community Forum

This town hall meeting focused on the importance of religious diversity – notably during these times of hate crimes and intolerance. Produced in collaboration with the University of Michigan’s Center for Social Solutions and Carnegie Mellon University, the organizers chose Pittsburgh not only because of the city’s Tree of Life synagogue mass shooting tragedy but for its efforts as a city to heal and overcome.
