Dr. Anne Klaeysen, Leader
Chris Bernhardt Presides
Anne will interview Bertha Lewis, founder of The Black Institute and former CEO of the Association for Community Organizations for Reform (ACORN), about her social justice work.
The mission of The Black Institute is to shape intellectual discourse and dialogue and impact public policy from a Black perspective, translating the “think” in think-tank into “action” through a head, heart and feet strategy. I met Lewis through her involvement with Occupy Faith and joined the clergy Economic Fairness initiative at The Black Institute where she has participated in public actions to support low-wage workers.
