Arts Calendar

Faith and Public Policy Forum

Date: October 1, 2018 to October 9, 2018,
Venue: First Presbyterian Church - 525 N Broadway St, Wichita
Sponsor: Kansas Interfaith Action

The Event:

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 KIFA will again be holding a series of "Faith and Public Policy" Forums around the state in the weeks leading up to the 2018 elections. These nonpartisan panels are intended to give good, solid, factual information on issues of vital importance to voters of faith and conscience.

The panel will include advocates and activists who work daily on the vital issues facing voters in Kansas: topics will anti-poverty programs, voting rights, justice reform, "gunsense" legislation, the high cost of monopoly energy utilities, and more. The panel will be moderated by Rabbi Moti Rieber of KIFA, who will also give remarks about the moral implications of public policy. Each presenter will speak for 10-15 minutes, and there will be time for questions. 

Panelists will include (lineup subject to change):

Ellen Glover, ACLU of Kansas 
Durell Gilmore, Kansas Appleseed
John Wilson, Kansas Action for Children 
Shannon Halbur, Moms Demand Action - Wichita 
Dorothy Barnett, Climate & Energy Project  

This event is co-sponsored by Women for Kansas, and is supported by a generous donation by Jim Horlacher of First Affirmative Financial Network of Lenexa, KS.
