Why are pastors getting into pulpits and in front of cameras… talking about NATO/G8?
After yesterday afternoon’s press conference at the Chicago Temple with Rev. Jesse Jackson, voicing official support for the protests that will likely accompany the two summits of NATO and G8, there can be no doubt that certain members of the faith community are deeply concerned.
SCUPE is proud to co-sponsor the following event, which will look at the place of economic justice in the Christian tradition. More than simple analysis and theology… the event will also offer an opportunity for participants to strategize and organize around specific issues of economic justice, on a local level, that are directly connected to the global practices of NATO and G8
