How we as a society collect and spend our common resources, and whether and how we care for the less fortunate, are issues with profound moral significance. Voting itself is an act of faith - a belief that the actions we take can change the world for the better.
This year KIFA will again be holding a series of "Faith and Public Policy" Forums around the state in the weeks leading up to the 2018 elections. These nonpartisan panels are intended to give good, solid, factual information on issues of vital importance to voters of faith and conscience.
The panel will include advocates and activists who work daily on the vital issues facing voters in Kansas: topics may include Kansas' state budget (recovering from the "Brownback experiment", the status of state and national anti-poverty programs, voting rights, justice reform, climate and agriculture, gun violence. The panel will be moderated by Rabbi Moti Rieber of KIFA, who will also give remarks about the moral implications of public policy. Each presenter will speak for 10-15 minutes, and there will be time for questions.
Panelists (subject to change):
Adrienne Olejnik - Kansas Action for Children
Fred Iutzi - Land Institute
Cori Sherman North – Moms Demand Action, Salina chapter
Ellen Glover - ACLU of Kansas
