Creating a City for ALL God’s People (Supestorm Sandy)
Jul 29 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

One year ago on June 13, 2013, Faith In New York and our partners in the Alliance for a Just Rebuilding brought together 1,400 clergy, people of faith, community, and labor leaders to dialogue with the candidates running for Mayor of New York City about our vision for a more equitable city, beginning with ensuring that the post-Hurricane Sandy rebuilding process addresses long-term racial and economic inequality in our city through the creation of good jobs and real affordable housing. One year later, on Tuesday, July 29th at 7:00 pm at the Greater Allen A.M.E. Cathedral of New York, over 1,000 New Yorkers of faith from across the City will join elected officials at a powerful and prophetic “Building a city for ALL God’s People” Faith & Community Summit to revisit the commitments we won last year.
