Join Faith in Florida and Bread for the World in Orlando, Florida for a two-day “Faith and Race Symposium" with special guest Dr. James Forbes, Senior Minister Emeritus of the Riverside Church and President of the Healing of the Nations Foundation.  Clergy, laymen, and organizational leaders of all races will convene to participate in transformative workshops and discussions to explore the impact implicit racial bias has on poverty, mass incarceration, and other societal issues.
