Join THE FAITH & POLITICS INSTITUTE
FAITH & POLITICS CONGRESSIONAL PILGRIMAGES
Since 1998, Congressman John Lewis and The Faith & Politics Institute have led ten bipartisan, interfaith Congressional Civil Rights Pilgrimages to Alabama. These events have afforded over 120 members of the U.S. House and Senate this unique journey through the history of the American Civil Rights Movement.
Described by many participants as one of the most valuable experiences they have had while in Congress, the pilgrimages bring people together across political, religious, and racial lines, offering opportunities for engaged and reflective dialogue on the value of the Civil Rights Movement and its meaning for us today.
ABOUT THE FAITH & POLITICS
For nineteen years, The Faith & Politics Institute has served hundreds of members of Congress and congressional staff by offering experiential pilgrimages, reflection groups, retreats and public forums.Visit WWW.FAITHANDPOLITICS.ORG for more information concerning The Faith & Politics Institute. For questions concerning the 11th Congressional Civil Rights Pilgrimage, contact Nelson Watkins at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 202-546-1299.
In a world that is increasingly interconnected, we are dedicated to doing this work with the Congress because of their ties to a broad constituency and their leadership in local, national and global policy. Our belief is that our commitment to a relatively small but influential group of people will ultimately reach many.
