Georgetown University “Faith and the Faithful” Dialogue Series

The Initiative on Catholic Social Thought and Public Life at Georgetown University is a unique effort to build bridges across political, religious, and ideological lines through civil dialogue on a variety of national and global issues.

ABOUT THE EVENT

Through their “Faith and the Faithful” series, the Initiative on Catholic Social Thought and Public Life at Georgetown University brought together policy makers, journalists, scholars, religious leaders, and other people of faith from across the political spectrum to explore the intersection of faith, politics, and public life. The series offered an overview and analysis of the continuing and changing religious dimensions of political life, including the election of President Trump and the leadership of Pope Francis. It also explored the roles of religious voters, evangelicals, Catholics, and other religious communities in a divided nation and polarized politics.

WHY WE INVESTED

The role of faith and of people of faith in American politics are often misunderstood, generate confusion and conflict, and are changing and challenging both religious communities and political leaders and parties. With our support, the Georgetown University Initiative on Catholic Social Thought and Public Life supports Democracy Fund’s vision for a healthy democracy by fostering civil dialogue about the role of faith in our democracy, with a particular focus on faith as a way to bridge divides and overcome hyper-partisanship.
