More than 270 clergy and lay leaders from around Minnesota participated in the the Prophetic Voices campaign kick-off on April 26. Each faith leader was asked to commit to the campaign by increasing congregational participation in issues facing civil society.
According to organizers, Prophetic Voices is a movement to create a Minnesota where everyone can thrive. ISAIAH leader Aneesa Parks said, “Prophetic Voices welcomes people of faith into community-based and state- wide dialogues, and equips them with the resources and training they need to communicate, connect, and advocate.”
The campaign is sponsored by ISAIAH, Jewish Community Action, and His Works United, a coalition of African-American churches.
