This week at New Wineskins we‘re very excited to welcome Wheeling, WV resident, activist, and organizer Amy Jo Hutchinson as our guest speaker! Amy Jo is working with Faithful Democracy to organize and mobilize faith communities in West Virginia and beyond to support the For The People Act, the sweeping voter rights and election reform legislation currently before Congress.
You may recognize Amy Jo from her testimony on living in poverty before the House of Representatives Oversight Committee in 2020. Her impassioned speech quickly went viral and helped inspire many to advocate for necessary economic reforms.
Please join us this Sunday, June 6, in our New Wineskins Virtual Theology Pub for a conversation with Amy Jo about the importance of the For The People Act and why it matters to people and communities of faith.
(You can hear Amy Jo and Sr. Quincy Howard of Faithful Democracy talking about the For the People Act on the latest episode of the Accidental Tomatoes Podcast at this link.)
