Williamstown Institute to Help Eliminate Prejudice

Download PDF for this date

Practical method of achieving community cooperation among Protestants, Catholics and Jews and eliminating prejudice from community life, will be discussed by six round table groups which will meet daily at the Williamstown Institute of Human Relations which opens Sunday evening on the campus of Williams College here. The Institute is being convened under the auspices of the National Conference of Christians and Jews to consider the theme, “The World We Want to Live In.”

Participating in the round table discussions will be Protestant, Catholic and Jewish leaders from the fields of religion, education, business and labor, youth, and city and rural community and civic organizations.

Each round table group will consider the problems of cooperation and the elimination of prejudice as it affects its own special field and will discuss how the members of its particular field can cooperate to solve these problems.
