Religious communities are vital in identifying and addressing many key issues in the Western Hemisphere. Participants at “The Interreligious Forum: Promoting Human Dignity in the Americas” considered how interreligious cooperation can address inequality, the refugee and migrant crisis, anti-corruption, democracy and human rights, and post-pandemic health issues with their associated long-term financial impacts. Each speaker at the forum brought deep insight and experience to these pressing issues. Berkley Center Senior Fellow Katherine Marshall delivered opening and closing remarks in addition to serving on the organizing committee.

The Interreligious Forum of the Americas (Foro Interreligioso de las Américas) is known by its Spanish acronym, FIDELA. For a full list of collaborating organizations and conference information, visit FIDELA’s event website.
