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.

Sign up now!

Daniel Flaming is President of the Los Angeles Economic Roundtable, a non-profit organization which conducts economic, social and environmental research that contributes to the sustainability of individuals and communities.  Daniel has led more than 40 major research projects at the Economic Roundtable including most recently four projects documenting the case for raising wages for the working-poor labor force. 

Rev. Ched Myers is an activist theologian, biblical scholar and popular educator. Widely known for his work surrounding what he has termed “Sabbath Economics,” for thirty years he has both challenged and encouraged Christians to engage in peace and justice work, engaging in radical discipleship. 

Please join us at Holman United Methodist Church for a morning of learning and shared dialogue together with tools for congregational engagement. An opportunity for taking action will immediately follow the event.
