Penn State Berks holds Racial Equity and Interfaith Forum

Spiritual leaders from the community will discuss solutions to ongoing unrest

In conjunction with the upcoming Penn State Wellness Day on March 11, the Penn State Berks Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee is hosting a Racial Equity and Interfaith Forum from 1 to 3 p.m. via Zoom. This event is free and open to the public. However, advance registration is required.

The objective of the forum is to engage faith leaders, as well as members of the Berks campus Greater Reading community, in a dialogue to address the ongoing racial unrest in the country to find workable solutions that will bring about change on campus and in the surrounding community. Faith leaders are trusted by their congregations and hold love for humanity as one of the pillars of their faith, making them great influencers of change in this area.

Penn State’s Spring 2021 Wellness days, which are for all undergraduate and graduate students and instructors across all campuses, were created as non-instructional days with a range of wellness day programs for all members of the Penn State community.
