Three Faith Summits, Five Candidate Forums: Making Sure Your Faith Values are Heard during this Election Season

AfricanAmericanSummit

As people of faith, we believe that the love of God compels us to call for communities centered on our shared values of dignity, inclusion, equity, and redemption.

During October, our Latino, African American, and Central Minnesota members are hosting faith summits with our State’s top elected leaders.  We are also holding five candidate forums in congregations in the suburban metro region.  Each gathering includes a values-based dialogue with public and legislative leaders and candidates about issues negatively affecting their respective communities and regions, suggestions for improvements, and a commitment by those in attendance to work together after the election to make change happen.
