Sister SImone Campbell, Jim Wallis, and Rabbi Steve Gutow
This March 9-12, join us in Washington, DC for the JCPA Plenum to discuss the
role of the Jewish community in the issues of the day.
Our work on issues like the federal budget and healthcare is inspired by our faith and religious teachings. That faith and commitment to humanity is shared by many, which has meant a powerful network of alliesacross the country. At the Plenum, some of our country’s most important faith leaders will come together for a discussion on how faith inspires our work and how these partnerships can produce real results.
JCPA President Rabbi Steve Gutow will sit down with Sister Simone Campbell, the Executive Director of NETWORK, a National Catholic Social Justice Lobby and Jim Wallis, CEO of Sojourners, a national Christian organization celebrating 40 years of mobilizing people of faith on racial and social justice, life and peace, and environmental stewardship.
Last summer, Sister Simone gained notoriety for her “Nuns on the Bus” tour which traveled the country preaching a faithful federal budget. Jim Wallis recently served on the President’s Advisory Council on Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships and currently serves as the chair of the Global Agenda Council on Faith for the World Economic Forum.
Join fellow Jewish community leaders and national policy experts in DC this March 9-12 for this discussion and many others on how we as Jewish leaders can build the partnerships and act to protect the vulnerable, care for our environment, defend Israel and more.
