Faith Leaders Organizing for Racial Justice and Peaceful Communities

word list

On this episode of Peace Talks Radio, we speak with three people who are engaged in one part of the community organizing efforts going on around the country to secure racial equity. Both Reverend Michael-Ray Mathews (PICO National Network) and Reverend Alvin Herring (W.K. Kellogg Foundation) speak with host Paul Ingles about their priorities for organizing communities to work both locally and nationally to improve race relations and address issues of social injustice. University of New Mexico sociology professor Richard L. Wood offers his take as well.

Dr. Wood made a detailed study of the work of such faith-based community organizations for the book he co-wrote with Brad Fulton, A Shared Future: Faith-Based Organizing for Racial Equity and Ethical Democracy.
