Local community leaders examine diversity, acceptance at free open discussion today

  Faith Forward Dallas  

Explore how an unlikely friendship between community leaders of differing faiths, races, gender, and national origins has led to increased acceptance and support, and how we can engage in our own community to foster encouragement, understanding, and empathy.

"Understanding Diversity Through Faith: An Evening with Faith Leaders for the UTA Community" brings together Imam Omar Suleiman of the Yaqeen Institute for Islamic Research in Irving, the Rev. Michael Waters of Joy Tabernacle African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church in Dallas, and Rabbi Elana Zelony of Congregation Beth Torah in Richardson for this open discussion.

UTA, in partnership with Faith Forward Dallas at Thanks-Giving Square, hosts the free event at 6-7:30 p.m. today, Tuesday, March 28, in the Rosebud Theatre of the E.H. Hereford University Center. LEARN MORE.
