Many of our local projects are group specific and for local conversations, so they are not recorded. Some engagements are confidential and not recorded to protect the privacy of those who attend and the thoughts, stories, and experiences that they share.
At the same time, we engage with many areas of society and different organizations that are for public awareness and to promote religious literacy and its intersectionality (of how religious literacy relates to racism, politics, economy, and other individual and social factors). Here are some of those videos.
