Saturday, April 30 – Tuesday, May 3, 2011
The Middle Project, a non-profit dedicated to training leaders with a progressive faith, hosts their fifth national conference Saturday, April 30 – Tuesday, May 3 at Middle Collegiate Church in New York City. Each year the conference offers practical tools for faith communities to become more multicultural. This year there will be a special focus on faith, justice and the economy.
Celebrated theologians like Rev. Dr. James Forbes, Jr., Gary Dorrien, and Miguel De La Torre as well as sociologist Dalton Conley and labor organizer Roger Toussaint will address economic justice, liberation theology and immigration. Forbes and Dorrien have both been guests on Bill Moyers’ PBS programming. This forum allows participants to spend time interacting with leading progressives from several disciplines. They will help us understand what it means to “do justice” in today’s economy and understand the relationships between race/ethnicity, class and power.
The Leading Edge: A National Conference for Leaders on Faith, Justice and the Economy is co-produced by The Middle Project and Middle Collegiate Church. The conference takes place at 50 E. Seventh Street in New York City.
