Were you in Minneapolis at the 2017 gathering? Here is one of our amazing speakers from the last event.
The Rev. Alexia Salvatierra, a national leader in areas of poverty and immigration and an ELCA pastor, addressed the assembly on Saturday, July 15, in Minneapolis, Minn. Salvatierra lives in Los Angeles, and she helped us examine the systems we are part of that must be challenged, asking what counter-cultural, justice-making actions are we being called to take.
