How we as a society collect and spend our common resources, and whether and how we care for the less fortunate, are issues with profound moral significance. Voting itself is an act of faith – a belief that the actions we take can change the world for the better.
This year, Kansas Interfaith Action (KIFA) will again be hosting a series of forums around the state in the weeks leading up to the 2018 elections. These nonpartisan panels will give good, solid, factual information on issues of vital importance to voters of faith and conscience.
The Salina forum is scheduled for 7 p.m. October 15 in University United Methodist Church, 1509 S. Santa Fe.
The panel will include advocates and activists who work daily on the vital issues facing Kansans: voter participation and criminal justice reform, the state of anti-poverty efforts both in Kansas and nationally, gun violence, the impact of climate change on a state that refuses to acknowledge it, and more. Each presenter will speak for 10-15 minutes, and there will be time for questions.
Panelists (subject to change):
Adrienne Olejnik – Kansas Action for Children
Fred Iutzi – Land Institute
Cori Sherman North – Mom’s Demand Action– Kansas
Ellen Glover, ACLU of Kansas
Moderator: Rabbi Moti Rieber, KIFA
