The John Paul II Annual Lecture On Interreligious Understanding: How to Confront Anti-Religious Bigotry

The rise of white supremacist movements has led to a growing swell of antisemitism and Islamophobia. It also resulted in anger against far-right Christian extremists that has fueled hostility to religion in general.

Join our distinguished multi-faith panel for a discussion around the problem of anti-religious bigotry and how interfaith cooperation can serve as a bulwark against bias. Our speakers are all affiliated with the Shoulder to Shoulder Campaign, a US-based, interreligous coalition to end anti-Muslim bigotry.


Dr. Mohamed Elsanousi, Executive Director, Network for Religious and Traditional Peacemakers; former director, Community Outreach and Interfaith Relations, Islamic Society of North America; and co-founder of the Shoulder to Shoulder Campaign.

Rabbi Esther Lederman, Director of Congregational Innovation, Union for Reform Judaism; member, Central Conference of American Rabbis’ task force on the experience of women in the rabbinate; and co-chair of the Shoulder to Shoulder Campaign.

Kathryn Lohre, Assistant to the Presiding Bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America; Executive for Ecumenical and Inter-Religious Relations and Theological Discernment; and co-chair of the Shoulder to Shoulder Campaign.
