Title: Faith & Politics Forum 2019
Date: Jan 21 2019 (5:00pm)
Location: Progressive Baptist Church (3658 S Wentworth Ave, Chicago, IL 60609)
Purpose: We are gearing up for a mayoral election our city hasn't seen in decades and we need to be ready.  

The goal of the Faith & politics Forum is to have meaningful conversation about civic engagement and politics from a biblical perspective.  This initial conversation will engage several mayoral hopefuls in a wide-ranging discussion about how they plan to lead city government to address the many challenges our city faces, how they will use the mayoral platform, and how they will partner with churches and other faith-based organizations in the city.

The aim is learning. Candidates will come away with a deeper understanding of the issues that are important to the Church and our biblical view on the larger issues facing Chicago.  Our audience will come away with a more clear view of how the candidates engage with these views and issues.

Confirmed candidates to be in attendance: Amara Enyia, Bill Daley, Garry McCarthy, LaShawn Ford, Lori Lightfoot, Toni Preckwinkle, and Willie Wilson.
