A Panel Discussion - Religious Tolerance in America: Ending the Violence of Religious Prejudice
When: Sunday, February 24, 4:00 – 5:30 pm
Come and be part of a lively discussion of issues important to our community, nation, and world.
Religious violence in America, and the world, is on an upswing. Anti-Semitic incidents in America reported to the Anti-Defamation League increased from 1,267 in 2016 to 1,986 in 2017. Anti-Muslim hate crimes in the U.S. also rose in the past year according to figures from the Council on American-Islamic Relations. During this time, it is important to have conversations on finding the path toward religious tolerance. We will be joined by a panel to discuss this question. The panel will include: Mark Noguchi, who was raised in and practices the teachings of Buddhism and has studied Christianity and Judaism; Matt Kahn, currently director of the American Jewish Committee in San Francisco, who has worked in interfaith organizations for much of his life; and Khadija Hansia, a Muslim, and the lead volunteer at the Islamic Center of Mill Valley. Our own minister, Stephen Hinerman, who has taught world religions at Las Positas College for a number of years, will moderate. Please join us for this important discussion.
Admission is free. Donations appreciated. Refreshments will be served.
