The University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) Religious Studies department in partnership with the Tri-Faith Initiative invite you to register to attend the second annual Race, Religion, and Social Justice Conference.
This year’s theme is “Building Bridges of Hope."
The conference will address intersections between race, religion, and social justice across different sectors of society. We invite multi-sector approaches — nonprofit and civic leaders, diversity, equity, access, and inclusion (DEAI) practitioners, community members, educators, physical and mental health practitioners, artists, religious communities, and scholars.
There will be a range of education, conversation, and workshop sessions, as well as visual and performing art pieces. Attendees will also be able to enjoy food trucks and other vendors.
Clint Smith, New York Times #1 bestselling author of How the Word is Passed: A Reckoning with the History of Slavery Across America, will be the keynote speaker. "An Evening with Clint Smith" will be presented as a fireside chat conversation at 7 PM on Wednesday, June 7, at Temple Israel (13111 Sterling Ridge Drive, Omaha, NE 68144).
You can learn more or register for the event through the online registration page. UNO students can attend the conference for free!
