As Hispanic religious leaders (albeit on very different scales), we exist in a space that spans the spiritual and the material, religion and politics, the Global North and the Global South. We are therefore uniquely situated to bear witness to the threat that climate change poses.

We should be asking how we can best respond to crime in ways that help communities to be safe, healthy, healed, and whole. We should work to prevent crime before it's too late. We should hold people accountable for the harm they have caused, but we should do it in ways that create opportunities for different choices in the future.

Rev. Gabriel Salguero | Posted 11.23.2014 | Religion

Feast With Your Family This Thanksgiving; Then Fast With Us Next Week -- for Families in Great Distress

Jim Wallis | Posted 01.29.2014 | Politics
Jim Wallis

The debate about immigration reform has been very productive in America over these past several years. And that debate has been won -- by those who favor a common sense agenda for reform. There are really few policy debates left on this issue, except about details. There is no real substance behind the opposition to reforming what mostly everyone agrees is a broken and brutal system. Rather it is politics: angry politics, fearful politics, and, sadly, racially-based politics, with institutional political practices and rules that can avoid democratic accountability. That is just wrong. Democracy is being vetoed by corrupt and racial politics. It's not just our immigration system that is broken -- our politics are too.
