Washington Archbishop Wilton Gregory will discuss the role faith can play in overcoming racial injustice during a June 30 online discussion with the American Jewish Committee (AJC). The talk will be online via Zoom at 11 a.m.
Titled “Race in America: The Faith Perspective,” the dialogue will feature Archbishop Gregory and Rabbi Noam Marans, the director of interreligious and intergroup relations for the AJC. They will discuss how religion can be a source for good as America confronts the current health and race crises and what faith and political confluences must be overcome in addressing racial injustice.
Archbishop Gregory, the former president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, has long been a leader in Catholic-Jewish and Black-Jewish relations. Currently, he is co-chairman of the Dialogue between the USCCB and the Council of Synagogues. The AJC is a worldwide organization dedicated to fighting antisemitism, extremism and all forms of racism.
