NEW YORK (March 31, 2016) — The annual convention of the Religion Communicators Council opened today in New York City with a panel discussion focused on how religious communities can come together to make headway on key issues of social justice.
With Laurie Goodstein, national religion correspondent for the New York Times, serving as moderator, women from a number of different faith traditions who have deep experience working within and across faith communities considered how faith communities might navigate through religious differences, find commonality, and bring about change. The Many Paths and Many More Intersections: Navigating Multi-religious Activism panel included Katherine Marshall, Joyce Dubensky, Linda Sarsour, and Katharine Rhodes Henderson.
Goodstein began the conversation by acknowledging the work in which the panelists were already involved and asked about some of their successes.
