"Faithful responses to TEL/TABOR" workshop

This appeared in my church newsletter, and I thought I should pass it along. I have no idea if there is still space available in the workshop or not, but it's good to know that someone is doing this. Hopefully there will be some materials made available for for faith leaders who are unable to attend a workshop.

2:30-5:30 p.m.
Congregation Tifereth Israel, Columbus, Ohio

Join us for a lively and informative discussion of the TEL/TABOR ballot initiative, which will be before Ohio voters in Nobember. Learn about the legislation from policy experts and discuss ways in which clergy can best communicate with their congregations from a faith and values perspective about the impact of TEL/TABOR on the most vulnerable Ohioans.

  • Rev. Jennifer Butler, Faith in Public Life
  • Dr. John Irons, TABOR Expert, The Center for American Progress
  • Tom Pirrello, The Res Publica Institute
  • Jan Resseger, United Church of Christ Justice and Witness Cleveland
After the meeting, we hope you plan to proceed with us to the Newman Center at Ohio State for an open Town Hall Meeting on this subject sponsored by the Center for American Progress.

Presented with support from Faith in Public Life, the Center for American Progress and We Believe Ohio.
