Join us in exploring the roles that faith and women’s voices can play in questions of economic justice in America. Rev. Dr. Katharine Henderson, President of Auburn Seminary will lead a panel discussion featuring nationally renowned faith leaders and Auburn Seminary Senior Fellows Sister Simone Campbell, Executive Director of NETWORK, and Rev. Dr. Jacqui Lewis, senior minister of Middle Collegiate Church, as they wrestle with questions of faith, gender, and race in relation to growing economic inequality in America.

The Rev. Dr. Katharine Henderson is president of Auburn Seminary in New York, a multifaith leadership development and research institute that equips bold and resilient leaders of faith and moral courage to build communities, bridge divides, pursue justice, and heal the world. She is author of God’s Troublemakers: How Women of Faith are Changing the World and released a TEDx talk, “Letting God Out of the Box,” in February 2017.

Sister Simone Campbell is the executive director of NETWORK, the Catholic social justice lobby founded by Catholic Sisters. She is the author of A Nun on the Bus: How All of Us Can Create Hope, Change, and Community and has led four national Nuns on the Bus tours since 2012, focused on issues such as economic justice, immigration reform, and civic engagement. Sister Campbell is a religious leader, attorney, and poet with extensive experience in public policy and advocacy for systemic change. She lobbies on issues of economic justice and peace-building in Washington, D.C.

The Rev. Dr. Jacqui Lewis is senior minister of Middle Collegiate Church in New York City. Dr. Lewis is a nationally sought after preacher and activist on racial reconciliation, LGBTI equality, and economic justice. Dr. Lewis launched and hosted the MSNBC.com program Just Faith, featuring inclusive, interreligious, unorthodox conversations about culture and current events through the lens of progressive faith and spirituality. She co-founded The Middle Project, a leadership training institute for progressive faith leaders and social justice activists. Her books include The Power of Stories: A Guide for Leaders in Multi-Racial and Multi-Cultural Congregations.
