The Way Forward: Poverty
A conversation with Leslie Copeland Tune
As we continue to consider the way forward, how will President-Elect Trump and Congress deal with issues of poverty? How will the churches continue to advocate for the poor across America?
My guest for this important podcast is the Rev. Dr. Leslie Copeland Tune, Director of the Ecumenical Poverty Initiative, an organization dedicated to empowering and mobilizing the faith community to speak and act to end the scandal of poverty in the United States. We will talk about the issues connected to poverty, how Jesus taught us to seek justice for the poor, and how churches can be involved in anti-poverty work. It’s a complex issue with a very simple imperative.
