Survey Hosted at UA Little Rock Looks at Religion, Race and Politics

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Race, ethnicity, religion  and politics. All are important topics to be talked about, at  the University of Arkansas at Little Rock on Thursday they did just that. 

UA Little Rock teamed up with the Clinton School of Public Service to release a recent study, which reviewed how religious organizations in Little Rock affected community and political engagement in their congregates.

A student who conducted the study says they wanted to see if there was a correlation between these topics. 

"We wanted to have a better understanding of what it means for somebody who attends church to be involved and engaged in politics and the community," said Paola Cavallari, a UA Little Rock graduate student. 

The surveyed covered nearly 1500 people at 17 different churches. The results are expected to soon be released online.
