Darryl Owens: Central Florida Faith Leaders Work To Bridge Racial Divide

Deadly encounters across the country involving black men and police have spurred a diverse group of Central Florida faith leaders to band together and help different communities better understand each other. Ministers, rabbis, and other religious leaders are having regular open discussions between themselves and their congregations…and their efforts are getting noticed. On Thursday, June 4th, Orlando Sentinel columnist and editorial writer Darryl Owens is moderating a public forum with faith leaders called “Leap of Faith: Religion’s Role in Racial Reconciliation.”

Darryl says the idea for the forum came from one of his co-workers.

Find more information about the forum at the Orlando Sentinel website.
