Fremont, USA: A City's Encounter With Religious Diversity
Tue, 11/10/2009 - 4:01pm by Bertha
Thursday, November 19, from 6:30-8:30 PM, at the Downtown Library/MPR, the film, 'Fremont, USA: A City's Encounter With Religious Diversity' will be shown, followed by a discussion with Director, Ellie Pierce, from the Harvard Pluralism Project.
This film explores the complex and challenging issues of religious diversity in Fremont, California, a city transformed by new immigration. Through civic engagement and interfaith action, Muslims, Christians, Sikhs, and Buddhists have gone from being strangers to neighbors in this American city.
This event is part of the University-Community Social and Environmental Film and Discussion Series sponsored by the Michigan Community Scholars Program and AADL.
