On the Moral Importance of Dialogue Now: Talking About Racism and the New Encyclical of Pope Francis

Here in Minnesota, in response to concerns about “systemic racism” preventing the U.S. from providing “liberty and justice for all,” the Caux Round Table convened a round table to discuss how we talk and might talk about “racism.” Then, coincidently, following that event, Pope Francis issued his Encyclical Fratelli Tutti on dialogue and encounter with others.

A summary of our round table and a comment on the Pope’s important argument are included here.

I would be most interested in your thoughts and feedback.
