HOUSTON (June 19, 2020) Juneteenth – June 19 – is a holiday commemorating the ending of slavery in the United States. To commemorate this special day Interfaith Ministries for Greater Houston has partnered with the powerful faith and civil rights trio Archbishop Joseph Fiorenza, Rabbi Samuel Karff, and Reverend William Lawson to present The Dialogue Project: Vital Conversations with our Community – Fighting for Justice, Equality and Respect.

The session features the three faith leaders together at Interfaith Ministries’ Brigitte & Bashar Kalai Plaza of Respect, which was created as a multi-faith space for education, dialogue and community. The Plaza features three Pillars of Light, honoring each of the Three Amigos for their commitment to ecumenism and social justice.

Sucre Woodley, director of marketing and communications at Interfaith Ministries moderates the discussion. The Dialogue Project is sponsored by Interfaith Ministries’ Multi-Faith Council representing more than 50 local congregations.
