NEW YORK (April 1, 2016) — Eleven young religion communicators met in person for the first time at the 2016 Religion Communicators Council Convention in New York City March 30.

The public relations professionals and students were named last fall, along with a cohort of 16 Religion Newswriters Association honorees, as 2015-16 Handa Fellows in Interreligious Communication through a new joint program by RCC and RNA. The fellowships are funded by a grant to RNA’s Foundation from the New York-based International Shinto Foundation. The program seeks to foster greater religious literacy in faith-based communication and mainstream religion reporting.
