The Episcopal Church Presents “The State of Racism in America” Forum

From PR Web-

For the past year, the Cincinnati Human Relations Commission (CHRC), churches and other local non-profits have participated in sending out surveys and publicizing the Episcopal Church’s ongoing efforts to increase awareness and create dialogue regarding “The State of Racism in America.”

On November 15, 2013, the Episcopal Church will host an online forum centered on a critical topic for our times: “Fifty Years Later: The State of Racism in America.” Originating from St. Andrew’s Episcopal Cathedral in Jackson, MS (Diocese of Mississippi), this 90-minute ecumenical forum will be a live webcast beginning at 1:00 pm, Central Standard Time. The CHRC will stream the conference live from City Hall Room 115 at 2:00 pm, EST.

The forum will be moderated by well-known journalist and PBS commentator Ray Suarez. Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori is the keynote speaker. Two panel discussions will focus on main themes: “Racism in America today - Why does it persist?” and “Racism in America's future - Where is there hope for change?”
