The story of the hundreds of girls abducted from their school by the violent extremist group, Boko Haram, is one that has resonated in the hearts of millions around the globe. Rev. Dr. Emma Jordan-Simpson, Executive Pastor of the Concord Baptist Church of Christ in Brooklyn, N.Y. will share with Welton the work she and her congregation have been doing to address the situation, and what she hopes can be done to promote the empowerment of women across Africa. She’ll also discuss some of the ways that religion has been used, both in the U.S. and abroad, to promote a misguided agenda – and how we can combat it.
