John Lewis, The Beloved Community, And Energy Justice

October 5, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

For Tennessee Interfaith Power & Light’s October Climate Academy, you are invited to a reflection on the life, principles, and practices of John Lewis and how they inform a faith-based approach to nonviolence, community formation, and energy justice. Lewis’s formative years were in the Nashville sit-in movement. This tradition continues on in Nashville.

Tennessee Interfaith Power &  Light will continue this reflection by examining two more recent nonviolent campaigns: a four-month long sit-in on health care at the Tennessee State Capitol in Nashville, and a vigorous campaign for energy justice in Chicago.

The presenter, Dr. Daniel Joranko was a core organizer in both of these campaigns. He also teaches courses on nonviolent movements at both Vanderbilt Divinity School and Riverbend Maximum Security Institution.
