Nashville, TN, August 01, 2020 --(PR.com
)-- The Religion Communicators Council (RCC) is an interfaith association of religion communicators at work in print and electronic communication, marketing and public relations. The Nashville Chapter meets monthly at rotating locations to learn about other faith traditions, learn from fellow communicators and gain professional development opportunities.
Due to the onset of COVID-19, RCC members have been meeting virtually, for the most part, since March. The August meeting will be no different and will take place over Zoom.
RCC will hear from a special guest with Free for Life International, a non-profit organization with the mission to identify, assist, and restore life to the victims and survivors of human trafficking. Their vision, while simply stated, is bold, "freedom for all."
“We’re so glad to have Free for Life present to the RCC in any capacity,” says Julie Brinker, RCC Communications Coordinator, “It is one of the most important human trafficking awareness and restoration organizations in the country.”
During the July meeting, RCC members heard from Aisha Lbhalla, Founder of the Muslim Women's Council. Aisha recently was one of three people asked by the Faith & Culture Center about the national conversation about race. She answered questions on "What are some things racism has taught her?" and "What would she tell a non-Black person that wants to become Anti-racist?"
The conversation began with deep topics on race relations in the country, drawing from RCC members’ personal experiences, to the COVID-19 pandemic and how members’ lives have changed or been impacted with everything that has happened during 2020.
The RCC has members from every faith group and walk of life including Baha’is, Christians, Jews, Muslims, Scientologists, Sikhs, Hindus and more. The RCC, founded in 1929, is an association of communications professionals who work for and with a diverse group of faith-based organizations in the areas of communications, public relations, advertising and development.
The RCC provides opportunities for communicators to learn from each other. Together, RCC members promote excellence in the communication of faith and values in the public arena. For more information about the Religion Communicators Council, visit religioncommunicators.org/nashville-chapter.
