Thanks to all who joined us at the 2016 Faith for a Fair NY Conference! Below you'll find links to press coverage of our action on Tuesday, a Storify of tweets and photos, and information about our presenters.
We're gearing up for our annual Faith for a Fair NY Retreat, held this year on Sept. 16-17 at the Dominican Retreat Center in Niskayuna! Join other faith leaders - both lay and clergy from many denominations and faiths - as we build relationships, learn together, and plan powerful action toward economic justice in New York State. Our workshop topics this year will include Single-Payer Healthcare, Effective Advocacy, Moral Budget, Low-Wage Worker Campaigns, and Immigrant Rights. Come be inspired and get connected to great work happening across the state!
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.
