Members of the Jewish, Catholic and Protestant faith communities of New Hampshire invite you to a conversation about our faiths and race relations.

This online program follows-up to a December 3 program on faith and race. Then, panelists and participants talked about how they see race and racial inequity through the lens of their faith.

On January 7, members of the Governor’s COVID-19 Equity Response Team will present their report and take questions from our faith-based participants. The report demonstrated racial inequities in New Hampshire concerning rates of COVID infection and hospitalization. Team members will present the facts and urge reflection from our faith perspectives.

This conversation will lead to a third webinar in the near future.
