Faith Engagement and COVID-19: What Really Works?

Looking Back to Look Forward: COVID-19 Faith Reflections on 2020-2021

March 1, 2022
6:00 a.m. - 7:30 a.m. EST
Location: Online Zoom Webinar

A study led by the Joint Learning Initiative on Faith & Local Communities (JLI) with eight faith actors focused on the discussions, innovations, and adaptations in faith networks regarding 2020-2021 COVID-19 pandemic response work, particularly COVID-19 vaccines rollout, delivery, uptake, hesitancy, and engagement.

Part one of a webinar series on the theme of “Looking Back to Look Forward,” this event discussed the findings from JLI’s collaborative learning engagement process and launched the report "Lessons Learned: Faith-Based COVID-19 Response." Panelists discussed how these findings can help us understand the diverse and contextualized ways in which faith engagement is happening around the world, and how faith actors discuss COVID-19 responses and the vaccines. Faith actors can learn from each other and help each other understand how better to work with health and development organizations in vaccine rollout in the next months and years of COVID-19 vaccines, and non-faith organizations can learn more about how to engage and understand faith actors.

This event was co-sponsored by the Joint Learning Initiative on Faith & Local Communities, the World Faiths Development Dialogue, and the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs at Georgetown University.
