Best Practices for Justice and Peacemaking: The Role of Religion in Community Building
October 30, 2017
Open dialogue across cultural and religious lines is becoming increasingly more challenging. The role of religion has emerged as a powerful force for combating discriminatory rhetoric and building strong communities across socioeconomic and cultural differences. This year, the Doyle Undergraduate Fellows are investigating new ideas and strategies at the local and national level to build bridges through interreligious and intercultural dialogue.
As they begin the fellowship, the fellows reflect on examples of faith-inspired social justice or peacemaking work they have been involved in, or that they have found particularly powerful and useful in their community-building work.
