The Mayor and Faith Conference
- Monday 27 November 2017 (16:00-21:00)
Mayor of the West Midlands Andy Street is inviting faiths from across the region to a conference aimed at strengthening community cohesion.
The Birmingham event has been organised by the Mayor to help him shape priorities and ways for working with different groups. Mr Street described the various faiths and related organisations in the region as “a force for good” that he could learn much from.
The faith conference is one of the Mayor’s 10 pledges that he promised to immediately undertake following his election in May this year.
A 17-strong faith steering group was established shortly after Mr Street took office. Its co-chairs, appointed by Mr Street, are Francis Davis, Professor of Communities and Public Policy at the University of Birmingham, and Amrick Singh Ubhi, chair of the Council of Sikh Gurdwaras in Birmingham.
The conference will be held on Monday 27 November, between 16:00 and 21:00 at the University of Birmingham.
