Constructing a Moral Narrative: Dismantling Christian Nationalism

Thursday, November 18, 2021 @ 6:00 PM PT

RSVP: https://actionnetwork.org/events/rsvp-for-the-california-poor-peoples-campaign-christian-nationalism-event


Ever heard of Christian Nationalism?
Ever wonder what it means?
Ever wonder why it dominates religious conversation in our nation?

Join the California Poor People’s Campaign in a hybrid online and in-person event to discuss the distorted moral narrative of religious nationalism with a focus on Christian Nationalism
on Thursday November 18, 2021 from 6:00pm – 8:30pm. Christian nationalism is the belief that the American nation is defined by Christianity, and that the government should take active steps to keep it that way.

In the wake of the attacks on the Capitol on January 6 and the attempts of
Christian Nationalists to silence the voices of the oppressed, the California Poor People's Campaign invites the community to participate in a moderated panel discussion addressing
the distorted moral narrative of Christian Nationalism. We will be joined by our co-chairs
Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II and Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharis for this important discussion.

Our goal is to hear from impacted persons and leaders from multiple faith traditions
within the backdrop of the oldest church founded by African Americans in Los Angeles,
the First African Methodist Episcopal Church.

Please join us as we begin our work to dismantle the distorted moral narrative
of Christian Nationalism.


PRINCIPLES of the POOR PEOPLE'S CAMPAIGN

https://www.poorpeoplescampaign.org/about/our-principles/

Principle #7: Whereas the distorted moral narrative of religious nationalism blames poor and oppressed people for our poverty and oppression, our deepest religious and constitutional values insist that the primary moral issues of our day must be how our society treats the poor, those on the margins, women, LGBTQIA2S+ folks, workers, immigrants, the disabled and the sick; equal protection under the law; and the desire for peace, love and harmony within and among nations.
