Partnership Opportunities

 The Ignite Institute & Pacific School of Religion is delighted to invite you to become a presenting partner of

 The New Story of Work: Politics, Spirituality, and Labor, April 15-16, 2016

Can religious traditions help us make sense of the changing reality of work in America?  How might remembering ancient stories help us understand work in a way that is relevant today?  Do Christian scriptures and other sacred teaching call us to stand with working people fighting for the right to organize and earn a living wage, and speak into the complexities of global trade and the exploitation of undocumented workers?

The New Story of Work will bring together organizers, faith and business leaders, activists, and scholars, to discuss how spirituality contributes to an understanding of what work is, what possibilities and challenges accompany the growth of faith-based grassroots activism around labor issues (e.g., Interfaith Worker Justice), and what resources religious traditions might offer the political conversation in a presidential election year.

Confirmed speakers:

  • 2016 Earl Lecture with Annie Leonard, sustainabilityproponent and creator of the animated film The Story of Stuff (2007), which describes the life cycle of material goods. In 2014, she became the Executive Director of Greenpeace USA.
  • Jorge Rieger, theologian and author of Occupy Religion.
  • David Vásquez-Levy, immigration reform activist, pastor, and President of Pacific School of Religion.

 

Your sponsorship will support the work of the Ignite Institute @ Pacific School of Religion. The Ignite Institute is helping to create a world where we all can thrive. We do this by providing education and training for spiritually-rooted changemakers, excavating and communicating the transformational narratives within progressive spiritual traditions, and by connecting a network of faith communities, social justice organizations, and activists working towards economic justice.

The Ignite Institute is an incubator and hub for spirituality and social transformation. We are gathering a community where spiritual leaders, social innovators, community leaders, and artists have the clarity and capacity to create a just/moral organization, movement and relationships.

 Pacific School of Religion is a progressive, multidenominational seminary and center for social justice that prepares theologically and spiritually rooted leaders to work for the well-being of all.
