Jim Wallis Virtual Course on Faith, Social Justice, and Public Life
Leader: Jim Wallis
How does faith inform public debates on social justice in American politics? How should religious leaders and politicians engage the political process while maintaining their moral witness? From 2010 to 2013 Rev. Jim Wallis, founder of Sojourners, taught a Georgetown course that addresses these questions. He took the class through a series of topics including poverty, economics, immigration, climate change, and war and peace issues. A series of prominent guest speakers, including E.J. Dionne, Jr., Michael Gerson, Dalia Mogahed, and Elizabeth Warren, helped to frame the critical issues. The course content, including syllabus, lectures, and recommended readings, is available here for a worldwide audience.
The course was made possible through the generosity of Lyra Rufino-Maceda.
