Download flier at link above. Hello All, the Center for Inter-Faith Worker Justice will be hosting a panel discussion centered around some of the Pope's remarks on economic justice. We would love to have you there to add your perspective, and to start the next steps toward achieving true economic justice. The discussion takes place on 10/28/2015 at 6:30. I have attached a flier with details, please let me know if you can make it. How do we respond as people of faith committed to the dignity of workers and economic justice??? In his apostolic exhortation, Evangelii Gaudium, and recent encyclical, Laudato Si’, Francis addresses materialism and the income gap that is harming so many working and poor families. IWJ invites you to join us for a community conversation and interfaith response to Bishop Gumbleton’s talk on Francis, income inequality, and worker justice.

Featuring, Wonteka Reed, D-15 organizer, D-15 activists, and other guests. Let’s discuss how our faith communities can come together to uphold the dignity of workers and the common good by workers receive a living wage. IT’S A MORAL ISSUE! Inequality of wealth and power is the root cause of most of our nation's social, political and economic ills. The call for $15 and freedom to join a union is central to building the mass movement necessary for reversing this dangerous economic and immoral trend.
