Civic Engagement

Enter the Conversation
An expression of the Cathedral's founding intention to serve as a platform for the urgent issues of our times, Enter the Conversation is a discussion series between the Dean and world and community leaders; thinkers; journalists; and activists, focused on such pressing issues as kinship, environmentalism, and the afterlife.

Enter the Conversation guests have included His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, with Eboo Patel and Sakena Yacoobi; Gwen Ifill and Michele Norris, with William F. Baker; Wangari Maathai; Karen Armstrong; Maude Barlow, with Wenonah Hauter; and Kyabje Gelek Rimpoche, with Daisy Khan and Dr. Burton Visotzky.

Through these conversations, the Cathedral hopes to encourage and empower individuals to be agents of positive social change.
