FAITH LEADER MEMBERSHIP

Rooted in our sacred traditions, we work together to move from fear to liberation, from violence to life, from isolation to beloved community, so that our thoughts, words and actions place human dignity and care for creation at the center of public life.

One person, one act at a time, linked together, creating the world that we know is possible.

Together Colorado Clergy & Faith Leader Membership

I believe in the vision of Together Colorado as a statewide non-partisan, multi-faith, multi-racial organization. I support its mission to unlock the power of people in our congregations and neighborhoods to address the community issues that most deeply impact their lives through community organizing. Recognizing our positions as trusted community leaders, I want to work with other clergy and faith leaders through Together Colorado to support this transformational process, building a powerful faith voice for human dignity in Colorado.

As a faith leader with Together Colorado:

  • You will receive the weekly Together Colorado Faith Voices reflection. See a sample HERE.
  • You will receive and prayerfully consider a maximum of 12 Action Opportunities annually, deciding to participate, or not, as so led. Signers do so as individuals, not as representatives of their institutions.
  • You may choose to participate, as able, in a monthly Regional Caucus in a strategic location or with strategic constituencies, working with other Together Colorado clergy and faith leaders on key issues and activities to build our collective voice & power. See list of Faith Leader Caucuses HERE.
  • Activities could include some of the following: building collective non-partisan relationships with public officials; visiting other faith leaders to build relationships & invite participation; participating in training, skill-building & networking opportunities.
  • You may develop and/or participate, as able, in local or statewide activities such as prayer vigils, press conferences or actions on issues that enhance human dignity in Colorado.
  • You may consider exposing to or engaging my congregation in one or two larger federated events or campaigns during the year.

OUR WORK

In such a time as this, we must think about how we support one another to organize around the changes we want to see in creating quality schools, a moral economy, accountability and voice in local and national policies, equal access to affordable health care and dismantling systems of racism and white supremacy. Please take a look at our work to become familiar with what we do.

We desire a merciful, rehabilitative justice system that maintains the hope and human dignity of every person.

We desire a moral and communal economy based on the infinite value of human beings, not material objects.

Our children deserve to learn in an environment that nurtures their growth and wholeness.

We have a moral obligation to provide equal access to affordable health care for all people.

Our various faith traditions compel us to love, care for, and seek justice for the stranger among us.
