Cincinnati’s Interfaith Coalitions Advocate And Educate On Community

Cincinnati’s Interfaith Coalitions Advocate And Educate On Community
Issues: Updates From Marcc, Amos, And Fcac.

Thursday May 10, 2012, 12:00 Noon,
Christ Church Cathedral Undercroft, 318 East Fourth Street

What are the community and public issues receiving attention from
three of Cincinnati’s interfaith coalitions? At the next Community
Issues Forum, Pat Coyle, President of MARCC (Metropolitan Area
Religious Coalition of Cincinnati), Rev. Nelson Pierce, Lead
Organizer for Project AMOS, and Charles Wallner, Vice President, of
the Faith Community Alliance of Cincinnati, will answer this question.
This luncheon forum takes place at 12:00 noon, Thursday May 10th,
Christ Church Cathedral Undercroft, 318 East Fourth Street.

Congregations and religious organizations sponsor and take part in
many local outreach and human service programs and activities. Fewer
focus on advocacy. Since the urban unrest of the late 1960s, MARCC has
represented the major judicatories in this area in addressing critical
issues that confront Greater Cincinnati. More recent in origin,
Project AMOS is a coalition comprised of diverse congregations
representing the Jewish, Christian, and Islamic faiths. Meanwhile, the
more loosely structured FCAC includes interfaith and secular groups
and members concerned about a variety of public issues. The panelists
at the May 10th Forum will depict both their coalition’s structure as
well as its current advocacy and education activities. As usual, time
will be set aside for questions and comments from the audience.

Come join us for this Forum. Lunch can be purchased for $5.50, or you
can bring a brown bag. Parking is now available in the garage of the
new building across the street from the Cathedral on 4th Street
between Broadway and Sycamore. For video clips of past Forums, go to

The next forum will be on May 24th. Topic and speakers to be announced.
