Interfaith Leaders Denounce 'Cabinet of Bigotry'
On Wednesday, December 14th, Gold Star father Khizr Khan and civil rights leader Rev. William Barber joined a prominent coalition of faith, family, and community leaders organized by Faith in Public Life calling on President-elect Donald Trump and Congressional leaders to reject bigotry and appoint advisers and Cabinet members who understand that forging a more tolerant, united and inclusive America is the best way forward.
The diverse delegation of clergy and community leaders, which included Karen Korematsu, daughter of the late Fred Korematsu, who fought Japanese-American internment during WWII; Faith in Public Life CEO Rev. Jennifer Butler; Rabbi Jason Kimelman-Block of Bend the Arc Jewish Action; Dr. Stephen Schneck of the Institute for Policy Research & Catholic Studies at the Catholic University of America; and Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner, CEO & Co-Founder of MomsRising, delivered to Congressional leadership offices a national petition signed by 2,500 religious leaders condemning the elevation of many divisive figures, including Sen. Jeff Session, to senior leadership positions in the administration of President-elect Trump.
