Frederick Douglass once said, “Power concedes nothing without a demand.” This webinar will focus on the art and craft of making a demand while casting a vision of what can be achieved in the year ahead. In this instance, we will focus specifically on how people of faith can best organize themselves to place pressure on Congress to act in 2022. For insight and guidance, we will turn to those with experience as organizers working locally and nationally:
- Rev. A. Kazimir Brown, Co-Leader of the National Faith Team for the Poor People’s Campaign
- Rev. Chibuzo Nimmo Petty, Senior Organizer at For Our Future
- Kim McMurray, Field Director for Indivisible
- Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib, U.S. Representative for Michigan’s 13th Congressional District
Even if you cannot make the webinar at its scheduled time, still sign-up, and we will send you a link to a recording of it.
This monthly installment of Creation Justice Webinars is co-hosted by the Rev. Dr. Brooks Berndt who serves as the Minister of Environmental Justice for the United Church of Christ and the Rev. Michael Malcom who serves as the Executive Director for Alabama Interfaith Power & Light and the People’s Justice Council.
