October 29, 2020

On Sunday, November 1st the Parliament of the World’s Religions joined the John A. Widtsoe Foundation and the USC University of Southern California for a special virtual program Addressing Critical Global Issues: The Role of Faith Communities.

The program asks, where does religion fit into solving critical challenges on a global scale? What does moral leadership look like? How can you personally enact change needed to address these challenges? If you’ve asked yourself these questions, you’re not alone.

Join Audrey Kitagawa, Chair of the Parliament of the World’s Religions, Larry Eastland, Chair of The John A. Widtsoe Foundation, and Varun Soni, Dean of Religious Life at The University of Southern California.

In this live virtual conversation, panelists discussed how global religious organizations impact policy through the United Nations Multi-faith Advisory Council, what moral leadership looks like, and how you can use your time, talents, resources and energy to enact change locally, which leads to global change.
