Christian Churches Together in Action
2017 Executive Summary
Christian Churches Together was created to provide an inclusive space where the major Christian traditions in our country could build bridges of understanding and engage in respectful dialogue.

The difference between CCT and other ecumenical bodies is that it includes the voices of traditions that historically have stayed apart form each other. From 2001 to 2016 CCT has provided unique opportunities for engagement on the topics of hunger, poverty, racism, and issues related to these major topics. We are able to have these conversations in an atmosphere of respect and mutual admonition.

During the last two years the political and religious situation in our country has shifted dramatically. We have seen an increase in tensions and disagreements between Christians of progressive and conservative persuasions.

What Would It Take to Dramatically Increase Mobility from Poverty? 

(This is a project that present fresh ideas for economical mobility. The Rev. Luis Cortes, a highly respected Latino Christian leader was part of the group that put together this paper.)

In 2016, the US Partnership on Mobility from Poverty (the Partnership) convened with the task of answering one big, bold, and exciting question: What would it take to dramatically increase mobility from poverty? Over two years, 24 members of the Partnership listened to and learned from 300 residents from more than 30 urban, suburban, rural, and tribal communities, as well as from 400 content experts. Together, the Partners, along with the Reverend Luis Cortés, developed a new, more holistic definition of mobility; five interconnected strategies for investment; and 13 actionable ideas to support these strategies.

(This piece was first delivered on April 15, 2013 to a gathering commemorating   Christian Churches Together’s response to Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “Letter from a Birmingham Jail.”)
 
 
"To this day, white evangelicals tend to understand racism in only personal terms and fail to understand the structural aspects of racism. We still have much to learn from Dr.King’s insistence that we must deal not just with the symptoms, but also with the causes, especially the structural causes."
