CTS's presents - Raising Issues of Today Conference (RIOTcon)

RIOTcon, the biennial conference hosted by the InterReligious Institute (IRI) at Chicago Theological Seminary (CTS), is offering an innovative, immersive experience to counter anti-Muslim bias & Christian privilege.

We invite students, organizers, activists, faith leaders, educators, and professionals to this creative conference. Persons of faith and persons of no particular faith are welcome. Join us for two dynamic days of deep engagement through facilitated cohorts, interactive workshops, artistic performances, and plenary discussions, as participants and presenters generate new understandings and commit to actions to recognize and reduce anti-Muslim bias & Christian privilege in our communities. After the conference, the IRI will follow participants, offering support and tracking the effects of our time together. Come ready to learn, engage, and do the work of creating the Beloved Community.
