LA's Global Stories: Religion in Los Angeles

Following CPD's event, "LA Confidential: Discovering the DNA of a Global City," student-run news organization USC Annenberg Media Center interviewed Varun Soni, USC Dean of Religious Life and a CPD Faculty Fellow about religious diversity in Los Angeles.

Pointing out that Los Angeles is home to the largest ethnic populations for several countries including Korea, Armenia and Iran, Varun notes, "I see Los Angeles not just as a location for global religion, but as an incubator of global religion."
