Renewing America’s Social Fabric: How to Foster Hope and Reconciliation in our Communities

November 17, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm EST

A private webinar for students, faculty, and partners, hosted by AEI’s Initiative on Faith & Public Life
Tuesday, November 17, 2020 | 7:00 PM to 8:15 PM ET

Over the course of 2020, American society has been rocked by a global pandemic, racial injustice, social unrest, and economic uncertainty. Even more troubling, these particular crises have uncovered deeper societal ills—including deep-seated sentiments of distrust and despair—which have been brewing for decades. We usually look to government for the solutions to these problems, but with a divisive election season now behind us, where else can we focus our efforts? What role can individuals and communities play in tackling these challenges and renewing our social fabric?

We invite you to join AEI’s Initiative on Faith & Public Life for an inspiring and practical conversation about how creative local initiatives can restore hope, foster reconciliation, and rebuild our communities. The discussion will feature Anne Snyder, the author of The Fabric of Character and editor-in-chief of Comment magazine; Joe Nail and Benya Kraus of Lead for America, an organization that creates community-centered public service programs that equip young people to invest in their home towns; and David Bailey, the executive director of Arrabon, an organization that provides Christian leaders and their communities with the resources to effectively engage in the work of reconciliation.

The discussion will be hosted as a private Zoom webinar and is primarily intended for college students, faculty, and partners in our network. If possible, we ask that you include your affiliation (school or workplace) in the “Organization” field when registering.
