Yesterday, SCUPE took its "Sacred Stones Immersion Tour" to three religious houses of worship: BAPS Swami Narayan Mandir (Hindu temple) in Bartlett, IL, Islamic Foundation and mosque in Villa Park, IL, and Holy Trinity Orthodox Cathedral in the Wicker Park neighborhood of Chicago.

On Tuesday afternoon, about 70 participants listened to Dr. Larycia Hawkins speak on "Embodied Solidarity: A Faith-Based Alternative to Divisive Politics," and eight religious leaders respond In her presentation Dr. Hawkins said that embodied solidarity is not talking about, reading about, discussing solidarity. It is putting your body on the line.That is why it is em-bodied.

Dr. Hawkins and the religious leaders signed a Solidarity Pledge.
Organizers (SCUPE, Parliament of the World's Religions and Arise Chicago) hope that solidarity may become the norm in how we relate with each other. It is available for you to sign as well, at www.scupe.org/a-pledge-of-solidarity/

Thank you to all who participated, particularly to Dr. Larycia Hawkins and religious leaders who responded.
