The call for Workshop Proposals is now online here.
The 26th NAIN Connect will be hosted by the InterFaith Leadership Council of Metropolitan Detroit. Detroit’s religious and spiritual communities include Baha’is, Buddhists, Christians, Humanists, Hindus, Jains, Jews, Muslims, Native Peoples, Unitarian Universalists, Sikhs, the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-day Saints, and more.
Detroit has been branded as one of the most segregated cities in the United States. However, we have a multitude of interfaith organizations that have been very successful in bridging the borders and boundaries of our urban and suburban communities. Our diversity has encouraged many interfaith groups and programs that nurture respect and understanding. We will be featuring many of our excellent interfaith initiatives by way of the plenaries, workshops and site visits here in Detroit.
We invite proposals on how uniquely interfaith work can bridge borders and boundaries; best practices in interfaith work; unique community challenges that interfaith work has overcome; how interfaith work could transform the civic community; how does interfaith work meet the challenges of segregation and a racialized society? Proposals are invited for workshops and panel presentations. Each workshop/panel presentation will run for 90 minutes. The proposal deadline is Wednesday, March 5. Program confirmation will be made by Friday, April 18.
