Bridgeman to participate in Ohio State panel on faith and racial justice

The Center for Ethics and Human Values at Ohio State University has invited MTSO Dean and Vice President for Academic Affairs Valerie Bridgeman to be a panelist in the virtual event “From Chaos to Community: Faith and Racial Justice.” Held to honor the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., it begins at 3 p.m. Jan. 20.

The panel asks faith leaders to reflect on the continuing role of organized religion in the movement to expose, resist, and overturn racist policies and practices. Zoom registration is here.

Ohio Council of Churches Executive Director Jack Sullivan Jr. and Usjid Hameed, governmental affairs and development director for the Council on Islamic-American Relations-Columbus, will join Bridgeman as panelists. The event, cosponsored by the Ohio Council of Churches and Ohio State’s Center for the Study of Religion, will be moderated by Isaac Weiner, associate director of the Center for the Study of Religion.
