Why We Invested
The Ethics & Public Policy Center’s Faith Angle Forum aims to strengthen reporting and commentary on how religious believers, religious convictions, and religiously grounded moral arguments affect American politics and culture. In order to foster civil political discourse on these often contentious issues, the Forum engages prominent political journalists who need to address religion as part of their reporting. Discussions focus on controverisal issues that cross party lines and are of importance to religious leaders and the public at large.
Twice a year, the Faith Angle Forum holds a two-day conference in Florida to discuss these issues in a serious fashion. It also runs an annual series of conferences for young journalists from media outlets around the country. These events have a strong track record of exposing reporters to different points of view, thereby informing the public debate in substantive ways that aim to help our leaders and the public rise above our differences and address crucial public issues.
