Adult Forum with Sister Quincy Howard

Details

Date:
June 28
Time:
11:00 am - 12:00 pm

The 2019-2020 Adult Forum series will conclude this Sunday where it began last September as Sister Quincy Howard returns to St. John’s for a conversation with Anne Derse about the current wave of demands for justice we are seeing in our society. They’ll also discuss the November elections, addressing how we can help ensure free, fair, inclusive elections in the face of many challenges. Joining the conversation will be Alan Yarborough, Church Relations Officer for The Episcopal Church Office of Government Relations. We hope that you will join as well for what promises to be an important and stimulating discussion.

Sister Quincy Howard, OP, is a Government Relations Specialist at NETWORK Lobby for Catholic Social Justice and works with lawmakers and their staff to advance NETWORK’s policy platform in Congress. She plans and carries out targeted strategies for advancing NETWORK’s Access to Democracy agenda on Capitol Hill by coordinating the multi-faith Faithful Democracy coalition of partner organizations in the faith community and beyond. Quincy brings her experience in urban planning to NETWORK, including community development, disaster recovery and resilience planning, environmental advocacy, and policy analysis. A professed Dominican Sister of Sinsinawa, Quincy is passionate about Catholic Social Justice and the call to action to protect and serve the most vulnerable members of society.  Her September 2019 St. John’s Adult Forum talk can be viewed here.
