The 33rd Marshall Meyer Retreat for Social Justice

Hospitality in a Time of Hate:

Religious Leadership for an Inclusive City under the Trump Administration

Participants at the 27th Marshall Meyer Retreat
“The Challenge of Homelessness: Strategies to Provide Support and Restore Hope”

On April 5th, ICNY will hold a full-day conference for the city’s religious and civic leaders, exploring the emerging challenges for religious leadership under the presidency of Donald Trump.  How, we will ask, can diverse New Yorkers best re­spond to the Trump admin­istration’s xenophobic rhetoric and policy agenda?  What new opportunities for dia­logue, collab­oration, and community organizing might emerge, as faith leaders mobilize around the rising tides of racism, Islamophobia, and anti-Semitism?  How can we advance an inclusive vision for the future of the city and country we love, in what may be a period of sustained attacks on our core values and comm­unities?

As in our past Marshall Meyer Retreats, the Hospitality in a Time of Hate conference will include a keynote presentation, panel discussions, small group dialogues, interfaith prayer, and networking opportunities.  Through these conversations, ICNY will help New York’s religious and civic leaders respond to the rapidly changing, and increasingly troubling, land­scape of American political life.  Participation will be free for religious and civic leaders, thanks in part to a generous grant from the Fellowship in Prayer.  We hope you can join us and your diverse colleagues on April 5th. Detailed program and registration info coming soon.
