In the wake of the novel coronavirus, many mosques, churches, temples and community organizations — particularly Black, Brown, Indigenous and other vulnerable communities — find themselves working on the frontlines to meet not only spiritual needs, but also providing communities with food, housing, transportation, education and access to health services. Through a generous grant from the Henry Luce Foundation, the Graduate Theological Union is able to provide rapid support for community-based responses to the COVID-19 pandemic and its effects. The grant of $150,000 is intended to enable the GTU to partner with local faith-based and related organizations assisting communities most impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
We welcome and are grateful for the GTU community’s participation in this project, especially students. Please feel free to share any of your ideas, work, and resources. Email Dr. Munir Jiwa: firstname.lastname@example.org
We extend our profound gratitude to our Bay Area partners for their extraordinary leadership and care, especially during the pandemic.
