Class description

Three women from different faith traditions – Naz Mohamed, a Muslim woman; Pamela Schwartz, a Jewish woman; and Ann Turner, a Catholic woman – come together to discuss how their relationships to their faith share a common purpose in their work for social justice. With Andrea Ayvazian as moderator, we will share how faith can inspire and fuel the stamina necessary for resistance.
