The Interfaith Council for Peace and Justice (ICPJ) is bringing together faith and community leaders to share what they have learned and experienced during COVID-19 and what comes as we pursue peace and justice for all. We will share resources for how to continue the work they imagine with ICPJ and our partners.

Facing This Moment
1:30-3:00 pm
Panelists: Bryan Foley, Pastor Alex McCauslin,  Rabbi Josh Whinston, Maria Ibarra

The Coronavirus pandemic has exposed realities of inequities that some in our community didn’t realize existed. As we practice physical distancing, many are experiencing grief and loss of loved ones. While we try to mitigate a public health crisis, the economy is failing to support the needs of those most vulnerable- people who are poor, undocumented, or who belong to marginalized identities.

This webinar will provide a space to talk about grief, faith, and the actions we are driven to take in order to connect through radical compassion.

This is What I know is Possible
3:30-5:00 pm
Panelists: Monica Lewis Patrick, Rev. Joe Summers, Natalie Holbrook, Commissioner Felicia Brabec, Vidhya Aravind

Some have described COVID-19 as a “zero gravity moment” where we can see new potential realities and have an opportunity to rewrite the rules. We have the choice to move toward more love and solidarity or to double down on exploitation and despair. Join us as our panel shares what they see as possible in their different areas of expertise and activism.
