Remembrance Project's Racial Justice and Interfaith Cooperation Panel
The "Remembrance Project" at Miami University seeks to create greater awareness and understanding about racial terror lynchings and begin a necessary conversation that advances truth and reconciliation. Sponsored in part by funding from the Interfaith Youth Core's Racial Justice and Interfaith Cooperation grant and the Office of Institutional Diversity, this virtual panel event features six prominent local and national panelists from diverse religious, secular, spiritual worldview who will discuss the present day legacy of racial injustices and inequalities. Panelists share how their religious, secular, spiritual values and beliefs interrupt cycles of injustice today. This event provides attendees an opportunity to consider how people across diverse religious, secular, and spiritual worldviews and racial identities might engage and support truth and reconciliation efforts regarding racial terror lynchings across the United States and in Oxford, Ohio.
