Event description

Description

Divisive...contentious...deadlocked. All words that describe our current cultural, political, and media climate. Whether you work in communications, government, or the law, your daily work leads you to the heart of this tension.

  • In this polarized age, how does God call Christian professionals to steward their voice and influence in public life?

  • How can we show an unbelieving world our faith through acts of love, justice, and humility?

  • How can we engage through tools like social media, without being jerks on Twitter?

Join keynote speaker Stephanie Summers, CEO of the Center for Public Justice, and a panel of journalists, communication professionals, and government officials to explore the challenges of life in the public square

SPEAKERS

Stephanie Summers (keynote) - CEO, Center for Public Justice

Stephanie Summers is the CEO of the Center for Public Justice, a Christian, independent, non-partisan civic education and public policy organization based in Washington, D.C. The Center works to equip citizens, develop leaders and shape policy through a variety of initiatives. The Center operates, under Stephanie’s leadership, two publications for Christian political formation, Public Justice Review and Shared Justice; Political Discipleship, a small group curriculum; the Institutional Religious Freedom Alliance and Sacred Sector, which encourage faith-based organizations to live out their faith-based callings; and Families Valued, which produces research on work and caregiving dynamics.

She is a co-author with Michael J. Gerson and Katie Thompson of Unleashing Opportunity: Why Escaping Poverty Requires a Shared Vision of Justice (Falls City Press). A frequent speaker and moderator, she also contributed a chapter to the edited volume The Church’s Social Responsibility (Christian Library Press), and has written for publications including Comment and Q Ideas. Stephanie is an award recipient of the first-ever Duke Divinity Reflective Leadership Grant, which she will fulfill on behalf of the Center in 2019.
