Every individual is part of a community. Every community is impacted by social and economic injustice. Every one of us has the power to act for justice. Your passions and questions are invited to connect with other justice leaders in an interfaith retreat, jointly organized and sponsored by the Labor-Religion Coalition of NYS, the NYS Council of Churches, Interfaith Impact, An Empire State of Tzedek, and the NYS Episcopal Public Policy Network. We want to help you begin (and continue) to build those skills and connections which will empower your communities for real systemic change, making a better world for all of us.
