Jim Wallis: Race, Privilege and the Bridge to a New America

McCaw Hall (map) Seattle Center
Sat., Sept. 16, 7 p.m. 2017

Jim Wallis is famous for being a "progressive evangelical"—he's the Editor-In-Chief of Sojourners magazine, whose tagline is "Faith in Action for Social Justice." As you might expect, things get tricky for Wallis sometimes. For example, in 2011 Sojourners refused to sell ad space to a group that wanted to run an advertisement welcoming gay couples to their church. But Wallis does sometimes condemn right-wing hate—in 2010, he called for a Glenn Beck boycott. At this event, Wallis will give a talk followed by a panel discussion featuring religious community leaders including Reverend Kelle Brown, Sr. Aneelah Afzali, Estela Ortega, Rabbi Daniel Weiner, and Pastor Terry Kyllo.
