Faith in Action: Creating the New Economy Across Religious Communities

Saturday, June 7th, 11:45 AM to 1:00 PM
Room 344

In the past, great movements for social transformation in the United States (antislavery, women's suffrage, civil rights) have often been powered at the grassroots by organized people of faith. Can this be true today for the emerging movement to create a New Economy? Panelists in this session will offer several perspectives on the ways congregations and faith-based organizing groups across religious traditions are already moving to transform their economies: internally, in their local communities, and beyond. Participants will be invited to reflect on opportunities for engaging their own communities of faith and spirituality.
