Joint Initiative on Faith and the American Commonwealth

As American society continues to fracture, this partnership will explore a number of factors that unite us as a country. From economics, to political ideology and renewing trust and civility in our social order, we will examine each area of American life through panel conversations reflecting a variety of perspectives on these issues. In doing so, we hope to carve a new intellectual path for religious believers of all sorts so that communities of faith can contribute to America's flourishing for the next hundred years. 


To Be Announced Soon.
