Community MLK Event
Tuesday, January 19

Community MLK Event with author Dr. Leah Gunning Francis

What happens when St. Louis-area faith leaders step down
from the pulpits of their congregations to speak out for justice
in our community? When does faith pull people from behind
the podium into the streets? These are the themes of a new
book by Dr. Leah Gunning Francis, Associate Dean of
Eden Theological Seminary.

Francis interviewed local clergy members of many faiths in the months after the shooting death of Michael Brown and their responses are collected in Ferguson and Faith: Sparking Leadership and Awakening Community.

Dr. Francis will be joined by Rabbi Elizabeth Hersh, Senior Rabbi of Temple Emanuel, and F. Javier Orozco, OFS, PhD, Executive Director of Intercultural and Interreligious Affairs for the Archdiocese of St. Louis. Rabbi Hersh will discuss her activism on Human Trafficking while Orozco will feature his efforts on Immigration Reform.

This event is in partnership with the Jewish Community Relations
Council's Michael and Barbara Newmark Institute for Human Relations.

Single tickets for this event are $10 each; Free for holders of the 2015 JBF Premier Passes

Half-price student tickets are available only at the J's Box Office at the Staenberg Family Complex in Creve Coeur with a valid ID.
