The Center for Racial Reconciliation’s (CRR) “Beyond Diversity Series” videos will be featured weekly during the month of November on Nyack Warrior Radio, WNYK 88.7FM.
The first episode will feature CRR’s Scholar in Residence Jennifer Jones Austin. The interview with Attorney Jones Austin will air on Wednesday, November 4 at 2:00 PM and re-air on Monday, November 16 a t 10:00 AM. She also serves as CEO of the Federation of Protestant Welfare Agencies (FPWA). Under her leadership, this social policy and advocacy organization with 170 member agencies and faith partners has secured monumental changes in social policy to strengthen and empower the disenfranchised and marginalized. Her work brings a profound understanding of the link between race, poverty, and social policy in America, and the role religion plays in addressing economic injustice.
Mrs. Jones Austin is also featured on the CRR Facebook page in a conversation on faith, race and politics as Americans participate in a historic 2020 election.
A second “Beyond Diversity” episode will feature Pastor David Swanson of New Community Covenant Church in the Bronzeville section of Chicago, IL.
