Religion Refocused Series

“Religion Refocused” was a series of film screenings and facilitated discussions in Greater Boston that sought to build cross-community partnerships and explore the complex issues of religious identity in America today.  This film and discussion series was made possible by a grant from Mass Humanities, a state-based affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. The series utilized documentary and narrative films to explore the lived experiences of religious minority communities and to promote greater understanding.

Our event partners included: Cooperative Metropolitan Ministries, Cristo Rey Boston, the Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy Coalition, the Lynn Museum, the Downtown Lynn Cultural District, Not in Our Town, the Islamic Society of Boston, Gurdwara Sikh Sangat Boston, Gurudwara Guru Nanak Darbar Medford, Milford Gurdwara Sahib (NESSC), Sikh Dharma of Massachusetts (SDMA), and Roots and Wings Training and Consultation.

The series ran from February 2015 through January 2016.
