…Rev. David Beckmann, President of Bread for the World, on his organization’s work to end global hunger, and most recently, his participation in the Circle of Protection, an initiative among religious leaders to defend the poor against extreme budget cuts.
…Rev. Robert Chase, Executive Director of Intersections International, which strives to build cross-cultural dialogue, on the progressive nonprofit Sojourners’ decision to reject his organization’s video ad on Believe Out Loud, a project welcoming same-gender families to houses of worship.
