Moving Atlanta to Higher Ground: How Religion Inspires Positive Change
Start Date: 2/6/2013Start Time: 6:00 PM
End Date: 2/6/2013End Time: 8:00 PM

Event Description
As part of its Religion and Public Life Fellows program, Religious Studies is proud to sponsor “Moving Atlanta to Higher Ground: How Religion Inspires Positive Change” at the Rialto Center for the Arts on Wednesday, February 6th at 5 p.m. 
The Religious Studies Department, in cooperation with the Community Foundation and the Higher Ground Group, bring four long-time Atlanta faith leaders, the Rev. Joanna Adams, Imam Plemon El-Amin, the Rev. Joseph Roberts, and Rabbi Alvin Sugarman, to the Rialto stage for a moderated panel discussion on religion and key issues affecting metropolitan Atlanta. 

WXIA anchor Ted Hall will moderate this conversation and audience members will be invited to present their own questions to the panel.
 
The founders of Higher Ground Group come from different religious traditions, but they share common experiences of working for several decades for change in Atlanta.  Working together, Higher Ground’s leaders draw attention to key issues affecting the greater Atlanta community. They speak regularly to these issues throughout the city and in the media, and they produce the Higher Ground Group blog (see www.highergroundgroup.org).  The evening with these leaders is part of the Department’s year-long focus on religion and civic engagement, which provides private sessions for students and public events.
