Reimagining Religion Conference: The Future of Religion in Los Angeles

What does the future of religion in the United States look like? Even as religious affiliation declines, the USC Center for Religion and Civic Culture finds signs of innovation and vitality in Los Angeles, the most religiously diverse experiment in human history. This video presents a summary of CRCC’s day-long conference on religious creativity and innovation, held at the University of Southern California.

CRCC, along with a number of partners, is presenting a conference on telling stories around reimagined religion on January 26, 2018. Click here for details.

The video provides a peek at how religion is changing today within meditation halls, service projects, secular groups, activist circles, and traditional houses of workshop.

Speakers included representatives of Against the Stream and Insight L.A., Buddhist organizations; Laundry Love and Sunday Assembly; Dignity and Power Now, an affiliate of Black Lives Matter; Word of Encouragement Church, Union Church of Los Angeles, and more.
