EquaSion Dialogues

EquaSion hosts conversations among civic leaders of diverse faiths and invites community partners to provide education on a range of human relations and social justice topics. These dialogues, which engage both the heart and mind, promote greater understanding, empathy, and collaboration in the pursuit of a compassionate community.
