About Race and Religious Bias

Presented by Howard County Faith Communities


With the threat of the Coronavirus in our nation and community, 

we have made a courageous decision to 

CANCEL our Wrap Up Session on Monday, March 16, 2020. 


Please continue to visit our sites for updates 

and join us in prayer for our community as we weather this storm.  

Be Safe and Stay Well.


As we engage in Courageous Conversations, we learn from one another through listening to each other’s perspectives about how we are living together through our experiences of race and religious bias.

The purpose of these conversations is not to persuade, debate, or convince one another of our positions, but to make space for each of us to be heard and to learn about one another, including areas in which we might disagree or hold different views.

Through these conversation circles, we explore how each of us can contribute towards creating a connected community of different people rather than a community that lets different people in. Courageous Conversations are intended to lead to courageous connections and courageous actions.
