Description

Together, we will explore how our personal and communal faith identities call us to take action for social change and justice. We will engage our traditions, including learning about specific texts and rituals, to learn how Jews, Christians, and Muslims are all compelled by their faith traditions to work for change in both unique and similar ways. We will learn how a local Boston organization, GBIO, has brought together 41 congregations in the greater Boston area to effectively lobby for change on the local and state level.
