Dialogue on public issues
Jun 25, 2018 John Sarrouf

Race, Religion, and Ethnic Diversity in Columbia, MD

Urged on by their member of congress and state delegates, a group of six faith leaders in Howard County, Maryland contacted Essential Partners to support a series of dialogues about Race, Faith, and Ethnic Diversity.


Inspired by their participation in Guns: An American Conversation, journalists Stephen Koff and John Count assembled this document to provide a common touchstone for participants in difficult conversations about gun rights, regulation, and violence in the United States.
