Together Colorado’s Annual Statewide Faith Leader Gathering: Many Traditions, One Vision: Engaging Our Faith-driven Passion for Justice. This annual gathering of clergy and faith leaders throughout Colorado helps us center our work and build a powerful voice for human dignity in our state.

Our 2019 gathering will be on Thursday, October 24, from 9:30 AM – 3 PM at Montview Boulevard Presbyterian Church, 1980 Dahlia St, Denver, CO 80220. Check in begins at 9:30 AM and the program starts at 10 AM. 

 

This upcoming year will be a crucial time for our state and our nation and we believe the faith community has a more important role than ever in bridging divides in our congregations and communities. Our two keynote speakers, Rev. Deth Im, Director of Training and Development for Faith in Action, and Donna N. Murphy, Lead Organizer for Better Angels will speak about how the faith community in Colorado can bridge political and racial divides and foster dialogue and belonging in our congregations and communities.

 

Donna N. Murphy is Lead Organizer for Better Angels. She works to create the infrastructure necessary for a nationwide, volunteer organization through identifying and supporting state coordinators, moderators, organizers and debate chairs. She also helps shepherd new initiatives from inception through their successful launch. Murphy has worked as an economist in the public and private sectors, most recently at the U.S. State Dept., lived in Asia for nine years, and is the author of one spiritual novel and two books about English Renaissance literature.

 

 

Rev. Deth Im is Director of Training and Development for Faith in Action. Deth leads the design, development and delivery of training experiences wherein people learn the art and craft of organizing. He has also been a primary leader in the organization’s racial equity work by developing a systematic understanding of the different dimensions of exclusion and how that intersects with the latest research in implicit and explicit bias. He seeks to identify and implement strategies that deconstruct racism to foster organizational culture which prompt people and teams to thrive.
