QLHE: Mind, Spirit, and Advocacy

The sixth event in our Quaker Leadings in Higher Education series was held on Tuesday, October 27, 2020. The theme was:

Mind, Spirit and the Pedagogy of Political Advocacy: Thomas Kelly encounters the FCNL

Scholars and grassroots advocates examine faith and prophetic policy change.

This workshop will explore the perspectives of both scholars and grassroots advocates to examine how leading with one’s faith is a powerful approach to advocate for prophetic policy change.

Ron Rembert, retired Professor of Religion and Philosophy from Wilmington College, will speak on his article “Thomas Kelly on “The Eternal Now and Social Concern.”

He will be in dialog with two staff members from the Friends Committee on National Legislation: Larissa Gil-Sanhueza, Young Adult Advocacy Coordinator, and Sarah Freeman-Woolpert, Advocacy Teams Trainer. Larissa oversees the training and organizing of young adults from around the country who are mobilizing their communities to take action. Sarah trains and supports advocates to lobby Congress more effectively through FCNL’s Advocacy Teams program.
