Faith and Democracy Tour – Reverend Jennifer Butler, Founder in Residence, Faith in Public Life
White Christian nationalism is a threat to our democracy and to our faith. But people of faith are pushing back. Rev. Jennifer Butler is visiting key states where democracy is most threatened to inspire and equip communities to reclaim their faith and protect our democracy, grounded in spiritual disciplines that have strengthened justice-centered communities for centuries. Together we can build a true multiracial, multi-faith democracy where every person can thrive.
Rev. Butler will be traveling to Wisconsin February 5-7, to train communities to reclaim their faith traditions to push back against the white Christian nationalism that is attempting to take over our electorate. Rev. Butler is partnering with Wisconsin Faith Voices for Justice, the Wisconsin Council of Churches, WISDOM, MICAH, the Interfaith Conference of Greater Milwaukee, the Wisconsin Council of Rabbis, and other faith organizations and congregations, to empower communities to push back more effectively against the misuse of religion, and interrupt the grip that hypocrisy and heresy have, on white Christians in particular, across the current social and political landscape.
