Faith Actors Upholding Democratic Values
December 6, 2021 at 9:00 am - 10:15 am ESTFree
In different contexts around the world, religious actors and faith-based organizations are providing many of the essential ingredients that democracies need – encouraging civic participation, advocating for marginalized communities, and much more. In doing so, faith actors are advancing democratic values and providing a defense against authoritarianism. In this virtual panel, faith actors from Costa Rica, Lebanon, and the United States will describe their grassroots, community-level efforts as well as their work at the national level of their societies. This panel discussion is taking place in support of the Summit for Democracy and is organized by the Center for Church-based Development, with support from Religions for Peace.
Moderator: Filip Buff Pederson, Denmark
Panelists: Ana Maria Daou, Lebanon; Hazel Gómez, United States; Priestess Beatriz Schulthess, Costa Rica
