Webinar: Compassion Across the Political Divide

Thursday, September 3, 2020 (3pm - 4pm US/Eastern)

Zoom Video Conference

The Role of Episcopal Values in Embracing Questions of Political Inclusion, Racial Justice, and Social Equity

We frequently discuss diversity and inclusion as vital components of Episcopal schools, yet rarely do we address the subject of political diversity within our pluralistic school communities. In this pivotal year of 2020, the saliency of this issue has become more pronounced in light of the Coronavirus pandemic, the Black Lives Matter movement, and the upcoming General Election. How do we affirm the spectrum of political viewpoints present in our schools, yet also maintain a steadfast promotion of the cornerstone Episcopal values of independent thought, embrace of differences, justice, and equity? We will share ideas in this workshop of how to affirm our Episcopal identity within the strong currents of this year's political season.
