The Case Study: The Canadian Churches, Poverty, and Intercultural Analysis
2-hour Conversational Webinar: May 26th. Time TBA
Join this constructive conversation on how Canadian churches can engage together on the issue of poverty in Canada. The webinar will begin with a brief presentation from Derek Cook, the director of the Canadian Poverty Institute, and Jim Cresswell, a representative from the Canadian Council of Churches’ Commission on Justice and Peace and professor at Ambrose University. Later, three people from diverse social locations will be responding and the respondents are Benjamin Lujan (a Latin American doctoral student who is majoring in liberation theologies), Adrian Jacobs (Keeper of the Circle/Principal of Sandy-Saulteaux Spiritual Centre/Turtle Clan, Cayuga Nation of the Six Nations Haudenosaunee Confederacy), and Serisha Iyar (the Founder and Executive Director of Leading in Colour). After this panel discussion, we will open the space for the participants to join the conversation.
