The Center is committed to facilitating public conversations that positively impact three publics: Student leaders, religious influencers in their respective communities, and greater society with an ear to enhanced public discourse. A Sounding is a full-day event where participants reflect on one central question.

The program will be moderated by Parliament Trustee and Co-Chair of the Global Ethic Task Force, Dianne Dillon-Ridgley, and will feature a special introduction on the Parliament’s foundational document, Towards a Global Ethic.
