Union Forum

The Union Forum is a project of Union Seminary to put theological and ethical resources into the hands of those at work in the world today.

The Union Forum is a meeting ground for theological scholarship and civic action. It grows out of Union Theological Seminary’s historic leadership in social ethics—from Progressive Era reforms to international intervention in the age of Hitler to the Civil Rights movement.

Our goal is to inform and include those outside the boundaries of the campus through videos, blog posts, and live-steaming featuring the many speakers, conferences, initiatives, and institutes here at Union—and invite you into that conversation. Through an interactive multi-media website, The Union Forum will explore social issues through the lens of principles and values and will interrogate the role of religion in the conflict and circumstances of the world.

Founded in 1836 by a group of ministers “deeply impressed by the claims of the world upon the church,” Union Seminary has continually expanded the possibilities for religion to be a force for justice and integrity. Today, Union Forum applies that same spirit to the challenges of immigration, criminal justice, globalization, ecological crisis, poverty and oppression.

Great things are happening at Union, and we invite you to be part of it. Sign up for email updates to stay current on everything going on here at The Union Forum.
