Wade in the Water

  • The Raben Group 1341 G Street Northwest Washington, DC, 20005 United States (map)

Presented in partnership with the Black Church Center

Historically, faith communities have been at the heart of the progressive fight, standing up for progressive values, providing spaces in which organizers could plan and work, and offering emotional support in times of trial and tribulation. Yet, now progressives sometimes shy away from embracing their faith as a force for justice. This panel will discuss how the faith community can help us fuel a new values revolution - as Dr. King called it - and what we can learn from history to strengthen the progressive movement today.

We invite you to join a panel discussion featuring:

Rev. Delman Coates | PhD, Senior Pastor, Mt. Ennon Baptist Church and President, Black Church Center for Justice & Equality
Rev. Noel Anderson | Grassroots Coordinator for Immigrant Rights, Church World Service
Rev. Derrick Harkins | Senior Vice President for Innovations in Public Programming, Union Theological Seminary
Jonathan Smith | Legal Director at Muslim Advocates

Moderated by :
Michele Jawando | Vice President, Legal Progress, Center for American Progress
