In this NEW 7-episode podcast, the InterReligious Institute at Chicago Theological Seminary seeks to lift up the voices and experiences of people experiencing and combating Islamophobia and xenophobia. Each episode will feature a personal story, an interview with an advocate in the field, and a thoughtful conversation from an interreligious perspective, creating space for new ideas, best practices and dynamic human beings to emerge. Named for the Islamic tradition of caring for the 7 neighbors near you, join us as we lift up models of creative social transformation. Join us as we meet our neighbors.
We also invite you to call in and participate in the discussions. Simply call (773) 896-2529 and leave a voicemail message.
