Faith-Rooted Organizing: Drawing Deep from the Wells of our Faith to do Justice in our Communities and World

Rev. Alexia Salvatierra with Jarrod McKenna

Fri 11 AM | Main Stage
Many of us want to change the unjust systems around us but we lack the tools — and prevailing secular models give us spiritual indigestion. This workshop will teach tools rooted in the deep wells of our faith to bring more shalom into our community and society
