The Soulforce Symposium Series is bringing much needed dialogue to venues across the country
What is the Symposium Series?
Soulforce’s Symposium Series brings the spirit of nonviolent social justice centered dialogue to college campuses and community organizations around the country. It is an amazing opportunity to foster community building through an experience rooted in story sharing and concrete tools of social change.
Each Symposium is tailored to fit the community it is made for through collaborative efforts between Soulforce and the hosting organization(s). Every Symposium also includes at least three major events: 1. A workshop grounded in the interest and need of the community 2. A panel discussion on one of many selected subjects and 3. A performance event or film screening. Events scheduled as part of a Symposium can range in topic from nonviolence 101, nonviolent direct actions, intersectionality, LGBTQ rights/political climate, queering faith (scripture based), youth activism, antiracism, HIV/AIDS, Islamophobia, learning to work within faith communities for queer activists and more!
So far, the Soulforce Symposium Series has reached communities in Philadelphia, PA, Manchester, IN and Harrisonburg, VA!
