We’re now streaming streaming live video of a public dialogue event with Krista from the University of Minnesota’s Humphrey Institute. Krista Tippett is moderating a panel with Richard Cizik, R. Scott Appleby, and Rachel Bronson discussing how the U.S. can develop better strategies for incorporating an understanding of religion into its foreign policy. How might religious communities help development, human rights, the environment, and peace around the world?

We’d love to hear your thoughts about this conversation. Please add your comments here.
