Race and Justice on Unlikely Conversations

How can religious institutions fight against racism? Why do many avoid talking about race in their faith communities?

In this episode, Fardosa Hassan and Genjo Conway – young faith leaders in the Muslim and Zen Buddhist communities respectively – have a frank conversation about race in interfaith spaces. This episode was recorded before the racist murder of George Floyd by police in Minneapolis, but the themes speak prophetically to this moment. Fardosa and Genjo were participants in the first cohort of the Collegeville Institute’s Multi-Religious Fellows program.
