How to Embrace Radical Difference with Jen Bailey

Event time: 
Sunday, April 23, 2017 - 1:00pm

760 Chapel St See map
Event description: 

From Ferguson to Charleston, Orlando to Baltimore, Dallas to Baton Rouge, the events of the past three years have uncovered through violent acts of domestic terror the wounds at the heart of our democracy. It is clear that in the absence of a new moral and ethical vision for our nation we will continue to self-isolate-surrounding ourselves exclusively with those who think, act, believe, and look like us because it feels like the safest alternative. What if instead of retreating into isolation, we began to embrace our radical differences as a means of breaking free from harmful narratives that force us to prioritize one identity over another? Join the Yale Humanist Community for a talk by Jen Bailey, an ordained minister, public theologian, and emerging national leader in multi-faith movement for justice who currently serves as the Founding Executive Director of the Faith Matters Network, on Sunday, April 23 at 1 PM at 760 Chapel Street.
