When values like non-discrimination interact with faith, many see friction and no solutions. We see a better way: talking to each other. The Tolerance Means Dialogues are about working together to move forward, not about relitigating the past. The Dialogue draws on your insights about more constructive ways to live together with our differences.
Event is free, and open to the public.
No tickets required.
