Book Launch:  Jesus Led a Poor People’s Campaign: Sermons from the Movement to End Poverty
Featured Speakers: Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharis, Rev. Erica Williams, Rev. Jessica Williams, Solita Riley, Aaron Scott, Colleen Wessel-McCoy, and Willie Baptist

This new collection of sermons features religious and community leaders committed to the unity and organization of the poor for a powerful social movement to end poverty. As today’s exploitative and oppressive economy is producing an expanding and deepening poverty, we need a revolution of values, particularly a revolution of religious values that champions the building of a broad transformative social movement to abolish the immorality of poverty in the midst of plenty and abandonment in the midst of unprecedented abundance. Using the Reading the Bible with the Poor methodology, as developed by Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharis in her book Always With Us? What Jesus Really Said About the Poor, these sermons draw biblical texts into conversation with the organized poor today. Join six of the book’s authors for an inspiring conversation about the spirit of justice.
