Social Justice and Community Organizing Teach-in
by Lauri Cielo
313 Pine St
Philadelphia, PA 19106
You’re invited to come learn more about how community organizing can enhance our parish’s commitment to social justice and neighborhood outreach. St. Peter’s is a member congregation of POWER (Philadelphians Organized to Witness, Empower & Rebuild), and one of POWER’s staff organizers – Graie Hagans – will be helping us explore how St. Peter’s can become more connected to movements for social justice in our city.
POWER is a consortium of congregations from all across Philadelphia, intentionally bringing people together across the lines of race, faith, income level, and neighborhood — lines which have historically kept Philadelphians divided. POWER gathers people of faith who are committed to the work of bringing about justice here and now, in our city and our region. By strengthening and mobilizing networks of relationship, POWER seeks to ensure that the needs and priorities of all Philadelphians are reflected in the systems and policies that shape our city.
