By Charlotte Robinson, September 16, 2019
With the Trump administration’s rollback of nondiscrimination protections for our LGBTQ community under the flimsy guise of religious liberty the Center for American Progress has named nine faith leaders to watch in 2019. These faith leaders are playing a critical role in resisting injustice & articulating a moral vision for the nation. The nine leaders to watch are Guthrie Graves-Fitzsimmons, progressive Christian writer, activist & deacon, Louisville, Kentucky, Abby Stein, Jewish educator, writer, speaker & activist in NYC, Reverend Naomi Washington-Leapheart, faith work director, National LGBTQ Task Force, Philadelphia, Reverend Dr. Nancy Petty, pastor, Pullen Memorial Baptist Church in Raleigh, North Carolina, Mahdia Lynn, Executive Director, Masjid al-Rabia, Chicago, Reverend Frederick Davie, Executive Vice President, Union Theological Seminary, NYC, Rabbi Rachel Timoner, Senior Rabbi, Congregation Beth Elohim, Brooklyn, New York, Drew Konow, scholar of religion, cultural critic, activist, New Haven, Connecticut & Reverend angel Kyodo williams, writer, activist, ordained Zen priest, senior fellow, Auburn Seminary in NYC. Through their work these extraordinary faith leaders have proposed powerful visions to reform the criminal justice system, advance climate justice, dismantle systemic racism & more. These religious leaders all play a pivotal role in fostering bold, progressive policies to create a more just world. The Center for American Progress is a nonpartisan research & educational institute dedicated to promoting a strong, just & free America that ensures opportunity for all. They work to find progressive & pragmatic solutions to significant domestic & international problems & develop policy proposals that foster a government that is “of the people, by the people & for the people.”
