A Conversation on Navigating Identity and Belonging

Join us for community conversation focusing on how we navigate identity and belonging. How do we identify? Where do we feel known and understood? Answers to these questions are not always simple. In this Live Event, Conversationalists will start the discussion by reflecting on the complexity of their religious/spiritual identity, and explore the religious/spiritual spaces where they've developed a sense of belonging or struggled to find acceptance. Throughout the evening, attendees will engage in facilitated small group discussions on the same questions.

The evening's conversation will be moderated by WHYY’s Jennifer Lynn. Food will be offered at this event.
