Faith in America

Faith in America is a series of public conversations hosted by Union Theological Seminary. Every month, Union’s stellar faculty is joined by renowned artists, activists, writers, politicians, journalists, academics and faith leaders for stimulating lectures and panel discussions focusing on faith and social justice in the national arena.

Topics are wide-reaching and include identity politics and socio-economic inequality, mass incarceration and criminal justice reform, women in leadership, first amendment rights, the psychology of group dynamics, and the longevity revolution.

Union will announce the 2017 – 2018 series soon.
