On Her Flesh: Queer Jewish Women and Pride Tattoos
11 a.m. - 12 p.m.

The pink triangle has gone from a stigmatizing Holocaust symbol to an emblem of LGBTQ pride. Similarly, Jewish women using rainbow Stars of David have been accused of promoting political agendas and have been banned from certain LGBTQ pride events. Dr. Amy Milligan, Batten Assistant Professor of Jewish Studies and Women’s Studies and Director of the Institute of Jewish Studies and Interfaith Understanding at Old Dominion University, discusses how these symbols and their use by women have taken on new meaning in their contemporary contexts. How are they used differently by women than men, by Jews than non-Jews, or by younger generations than old? And what are the implications when these symbols are tattooed on Jewish women’s bodies? Free and open to the public, the event is in Blocker Hall Auditorium and is sponsored by the Center for the Study of Religious Freedom. For more information, call 757-455-3129 or email csrf@vwu.edu.

Nexus Interfaith Dialogue: Gender Roles and Religion
7 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

Human sexuality has posed a range of challenges for all religious traditions. Through panel presentation and small group dialogue, this interfaith dialogue explores challenges related to gender roles that face religious institutions and individuals. “What does my religion teach about the equality or differences between males and females? What women stand out in my religion's scripture? How do specific scripture passages in my faith cause pain, misunderstanding, and confusion about gender roles? How do they bring support or joy? How does my religion shape how gender is understood?”  Buddhist, Muslim, Christian, and Jewish panelists reflect on these questions both individually and together, and engage the audience in discussion. Free and open to the public, the event, in Batten Student Center Pearce Hospitality Suite, is sponsored by the Center for the Study of Religious Freedom in partnership with the Virginia Center for Inclusive Communities and Hands United Building Bridges.

Are U.S. Immigration Policies Racist? Town Hall Discussion
2:30 p.m. - 4 p.m.

This “Race: Let’s Talk About It” town hall, in Boyd Dining Center, is moderated by Barbara Hamm Lee, Host of Another View Radio Program on WHRV 89.5 FM. Beginning with the Naturalization Act of 1790 - which stated that only free white persons were eligible to become citizens - U.S. immigration policy has consistently limited and restricted the immigration of non-whites. Even after the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 abolished the quota system that favored northern Europeans, racism continues to influence public policy and popular attitudes on immigration. What is at the root of the racial anxiety in our country? Why have elected officials – both Democrat and Republican – been seemingly reluctant to challenge pro-white policies and protect the rights of immigrants and refugees? A panel helps to guide the conversation, but the discussion belongs to the audience. Free and open to the public, the town hall is part of the One Love Festival and is sponsored by the Center for the Study of Religious Freedom in partnership with WHRO Public Media. For more information, call 757-455-3129 or email csrf@vwu.edu.

Imagining the Scandal of the Cross through Comics and Graphic Novels
7 p.m. - 8 p.m.

For countless adherents to the Christian tradition, the cross functions as a symbol of divine power. For the earliest Christians, however, the cross represented only a traumatic event.
