Faith in Action for Racial Equity Forum


August 13
4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

All faith traditions attest to justice and equality for everyone in our human family. Yet worship services are often segregated and faith leaders struggle with how to create a more inclusive and equitable Montgomery County.

On August 13 from 4:00 to 5:30 pm, four faith leaders (including our own Rev. Anne Derse!) will define the meaning of racial equity and describe how their faith communities are dealing with systemic racism and working with others toward achieving racial equity. This Zoom forum is sponsored by Silver Spring Town Center Inc. and the Faith Community Advisory Council of Montgomery County.

To RSVP for this forum and receive the login information, email lisa@silverspringtowncenter.com


Panelist: Rev. Anne Derse from St. John's Norwood Episcopal Church, Rev. Abhi Janamanchi from Cedar Lane Unitarian Universalist Church, Rev. Dr. Gareth Murray from First Baptist Church, and Imam Faizul Khan from the Islamic Society of Washington Area
