Legislators invited to ‘Faith Summit’ on foreclosures and racial equality

State legislators are invited to an April 21 social justice event, sponsored by ISAIAH, a coalition of socially conscious religious groups.

The 2 p.m. gathering at Woodlake Lutheran Church, 7525 Oliver Ave. S., Richfield, is billed as a faith summit for legislators, people of faith and community members.

Organizers say:  

Faith leaders will ask legislators to make equitable investments in transit, education and health care and to find the political will to insist that everyone contributes fairly.

Priorities, they say, include “a Homeowner Bill of Rights to address the high rate of foreclosures in the area, and to make policy decisions that will close the racial equity gap in the public school system.”

House Speaker Paul Thissen and state Sen. Patricia Torres Ray, both DFLers from Minneapolis, are scheduled to attend, and other legislators have been invited.
