Faith-Rooted Economics-Training Series

Faith-Rooted Economics
A Training series for Bay Area Faith leaders on values, economic justice and policy advocacy

Faith-rooted economics is a vision of a new equitable economy rooted in our deepest  faith commitments, where values influence policy and collaborative friendships are built to take concrete actions leading to change.

Participants leave each session equipeed with tools to converse and engage on nearly every issue they face in their economic justice work.  They will also gain a deeper understandig  of the religious principles of fairness, equity, sustainability, opportunity, and justice in the economy.

Using participatory popular-economic education methods, this training series identifies concrete advocacy steps and economic development strategies you can take back to your community as part of a Bay Area-wide plan for action.
