Jason Miller, Director of Campaigns and Development for the Franciscan Action Network, discusses those of faith on the Left actively promoting their values loudly.
Jason Miller has an important perspective
Miller appeared on Politics Done Right to discuss his work with the Franciscan Action Network and Faithful Democracy. Miller made clear that it is time for people of faith, assert their voices for policies that really matter to all Americans instead of allowing a negative political infiltration.
The Franciscan Action Network is a collective Franciscan voice seeking to transform United States public policy related to peacemaking, care for creation, poverty, and human rights.
Faithful Democracy is a growing national coalition of diverse congregations, faith-based organizations, and religious leaders with a shared concern about the state of our democracy in the 21st Century. We recognize the need to reform our foundational democratic systems to align more closely with the ideals of a beloved community in which all members belong and contribute. Any major movement dedicated to comprehensive reform—from the care of creation to civil rights and debt relief for poor countries—has included the unique voice and perspective of people of faith. Our network of faith-based partners joins voices around the need for transformational democracy reform.
