Two events at Emory University’s Candler School of Theology on Nov. 1 will address the future of interfaith engagement in an increasingly diverse and politically polarized American society.

Register by Oct. 25 at 12:00 p.m. for one or both events. Meals will be included, and kosher and halal options will be available.

The events, co-sponsored by Candler and the Wilbur and Hilda Glenn Family Foundation, will explore the challenges and opportunities for interfaith initiatives in Atlanta and across the United States, and the steps that young people should take to develop enduring and meaningful multifaith relations.
