IACO is partnering with the Puffin Foundation West, Ltd., Religions for Peace, USA, Ohio Council of Churches, The Multifaith Council of Northwest Ohio, Interfaith Forum of Greater Dayton, The Akron Area Interfaith Council, and EquaSion to bring you our 28th Annual Main Event - From the Broken Community to the Beloved Community: The Subversive Promise of Other Centered Faith, with keynote speaker, Rev. Dr. Jack Sullivan, Jr., Executive Director of the Ohio Council of Churches.
Join us on Sunday, August 23 at 4:00 pm ET as we explore the concept of the Beloved Community and how the interfaith community can be enriched by the promise of "other" centered faith.
The Poor People's Campaign: A National Call for Moral Renewal is a long-standing initiative focused on addressing the plight of poor people in American society.
In 1968, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and many others called for a “revolution of values” in America. They sought to build a broad, fusion movement that could unite poor and impacted communities across the country. Their name, The Poor People’s Campaign, was a direct cry from the underside of history.
