Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Peace

Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Peace

Interreligious Dialogue and Discourse at the Intersection of Democracy and Faith

At a time when the fabric of democracy as we know it seems perilously close to unraveling, where can we – as a community, culture, and interconnected global society – look to find a pathway forward?

A collaborative inititive of the schools of the Graduate Theological Union, “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Peace” is a series of public programs that showcase scholars, activists, and thought leaders from across the GTU’s wide network of schools and affiliates whose work grapples with the challenges of navigating modern civil society.

The list of scheduled public events associated with this initiative appears below and will be updated as new events are added. Events and news on the initiative can also be found on the GTU site and social media by searching "LifeLibertyPeace."  #LifeLibertyPeace
