My name is Br. Ken Homan. I coordinate outreach for the Interreligious Network for Worker Solidarity (IN4WS) and work with the Kalmanovitz Initiative for Labor and the Working Poor. IN4WS is a new and growing network of faith leaders supporting workers, worker organizing, and economic justice (see full mission statement below). I write you with two invitations: to share how faith and worker justice organizations might better collaborate; and to join our next monthly meeting.
Collaboration Meeting: We are soliciting conversations to improve collaboration between faith and labor organizations. Our goal is to build relationships that help guarantee the success of worker justice movements and deepen the work of faith communities. I am conducting half-hour interviews and collating results to determine the best efforts of our organization. Feel free to sign up on my calendar or send me an email to discuss further. Next Monthly Meeting: Wednesday, August 4, 12pm ET. Each meeting we hear from a faith or labor leader about their present work. This helps keep us abreast on major happenings, as well as share resources. Past speakers have included Adam Obernauer of RDWSU, Julie Taylor of National Farmworker Ministry, and more. We then turn to work items, such as our faith leader petition supporting the PRO Act (see our press event). Here is a calendar link and the Zoom invitation for our next meeting. Please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns. I look forward to collaborating! Sincerely,Ken
Mission Statement: The Interreligious Network for Worker Solidarity (IN4WS) educates, convenes, and mobilizes people of any religious tradition who stand in solidarity with working people, especially the most vulnerable, partnering with organizations and movements as we strive together to advance equity, racial, gender, and economic justice, democracy, and a sustainable and thriving future.
