Religion Communicators Council met in Atlanta to “realize the dream” of promoting peace and justice through communication. Plenary and workshop topics included public relations, branding, crisis management, promoting justice through media, and more.


The three-day event, “Virtually Here, There and Everywhere: Faith Communications and Presence,” was a multi-faith forum designed to enrich, engage, educate and empower professional communicators of religion and faith-based issues.


The Religion Communications Council met in Manhattan to build “bridges” among faith groups, find “avenues” to new communications skills and discover “intersections” between faith groups and the world at large. Plenary and workshop topics at different locations throughout the city included multi-religious activism, Google News Lab and the future of media, finding funding and resources, advanced social media training, and issues of religious freedom.
