Healing a Wounded World: Voices from the Bahá'í Tradition

Time: Tue Feb 28, 2023, 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Location: 1050 Jenkins Nanovic Halls | Zoom Webinar

Embracing The World

Humankind has long struggled with afflications such as war, racism, and gender inequality. On February 28, we welcome voices from the Baha’i tradition, which teaches the essential worth of all religions and the unity of all people. What can this tradition teach us today? How might it help us better understand the oneness of humanity? And how might we draw on its perspectives as we work toward a more just and equitable world? Join us for a wide-ranging and insightful panel discussion.
