In part two of Duke Chapel's Signs of Hope faith-based activism workshops, we will be exploring tips, training, and grounding in faith-based activism princples and strategies. Our guest speakers are the Rev. Bruce Puckett, Assistant Dean of Duke Chapel, who spent many years working with non-profits and building, relationships and bridges between disparate groups in Durham, NC; Minister Alicia Crosby, Chicago-based justice worker, minister, and educator currently obtaining a second Master degree at Duke Divinity, and co-founder of The Center for Inclusivity; and Ricardo Zamudio Guillen, the organizing director at LUCHA (Living United for Change in Arizona), a long time community organizer, activist, and youth empowerment leader in Phoenix, AZ working on the front lines of immigrant rights, economic justice, and racial justice. His past work with Neighborhood Ministries in Phoenix, AZ partnered him with Duke Divinity School and the Christian Community Development Association. His own testimony of God’s faithfulness through hardship and his own immigrant journey in the U.S. have shaped his career in macro social work.
Signs of Hope will address the faith-based relational work, the need for and reasons behind faith-based organizing, and practical tips and training on building relationships, community, movements, and faith-based activism and advocacy. This event is free and open to students and the public.
