Thoreau / Richmond Campus – 10:45 am
Rev. Chuck Freeman – Free Souls Congregation in Round Rock, via video. For decades the religious right has dominated the spiritual narrative on reproductive issues. Their impact has been felt through laws being enacted by our Texas legislature. In 2013 when Governor Perry called the special session to pass the horrible war on women’s rights there was no coherent organization for progressive spiritual action.
Rev. Freeman helped found Texas Faith Voices For Reproductive Justice and Reproductive Justice Congregations (http://justtx.org/congregation) The recent Supreme court nomination process clearly revealed the war on women still rages. Now more that ever it is imperative for congregations to be true to our spiritual DNA and come out of the closet for Reproductive Justice!
