INEQUALITY AND THE BELOVED COMMUNITY: A Faithful Response to Extreme Wealth Inequality
UUFD hosts author and activist Chuck Collins, as part of Thrive!’s 2018 Education Program. At this event, Collins will explore how people of faith can respond to the extreme inequalities so pervasive in America. His presentation will be followed by a light meal and conversation.
The extreme inequality of income, wealth, and opportunity in America undermines everything we care about. The imbalance of wealth and power tears our communities apart, undermines trust and faith in democracy, supercharges the racial divide, and destabilizes the economy. How can we as people of faith respond to the challenges of a polarized economy and the resulting polarized politics? What are the cultural stories that justify inequality and how can we shift them? How can we crack open hearts and minds to come together to build an economy that works for everyone?
