InGathering Keynote Speakers: Daniel Flaming and Ched Myers
We are pleased to announce our two keynote speakers for CLUE-LA’s upcoming InGathering: Daniel Flaming and Rev. Ched Myers. They will address the many ways workers struggle for dignity and fair wages in their jobs and the critical need for a robust living wage, both locally and throughout the nation. Daniel Flaming will present findings from the Los Angeles Economic Roundtable, while Rev. Ched Myers will lead an in-depth text study surrounding economic principles from a Christian perspective. We will also hear from local worker leaders in the midst of the struggle to change the LA economy.
