Faith Alliance for a Moral Economy Interfaith Breakfast
May 11, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 11:00 am| Free
Please gather with us to raise our voices in praise and celebration! Let us come together on May 11th for a morning of inspiration and renewal. We will honor local leaders and organizations who have lifted their voices like trumpets to work for justice. Please RSVP today!
This year’s FAME Interfaith Breakfast award recipients:
The “Movement Voice” Award goes to Central County Regional Group of First 5 Contra Costa. In the wake of so much fear and anxiety, they played a crucial leadership role in Concord, organizing the community and business leaders and city leaders. They were instrumental in helping City Council pass an Inclusive and Welcoming Ordinance that helped limit City and police collaboration with ICE.
The “Courageous Voice” Award goes to the Workers of Henkel Aerospace, members of the International Association of Machinists Local Lodge 1584, who bravely stood up and spent 60 days on strike after enduring many safety violations, including the death of a fellow worker, and ultimately won better working conditions and safety improvements.
The ‘’Prophetic Voice” Award goes to the Reverend Lynice Pinkard for decades of visionary multi-ethnic pastoral work, her unwavering commitment to organizing for community justice, and the transformative witness of her sermons, writings and ‘liturgical direct actions’ that have made her a public intellectual of national stature.
Lynice has lifted her voice like a trumpet in faithfully proclaiming the prophetic Word of Beloved Community in which there is care for each and justice for all.
We hope you will join us for this uplifting and energizing event!
Please RSVP today: FAME Breakfast 2018.
In Love and Solidarity,
