The world is changing. Our politics, economics, climate, and health are under stress. Old social divisions are intensifying. New coalitions are forming. We’re examining the justice of relationships in and between community institutions. People of faith, along with others, feel called to take action. But what are best practices for activism, resistance, and change? How can our traditions and philosophies guide us? How should we critique and strengthen them?
Conference papers can draw on multiple academic disciplines, and be grounded in any religious, spiritual or non-theistic tradition.
