AUDIO: The Battle for the Anna Louise Inn

by The Editors, Dawn Cherie Araujo | June 2013

As Sojourners editorial assistant Dawn Araujo recounts in “No Room at the Inn,” from the June 2013 issue, Christians in Cincinnati have stood up to a corporate giant trying to bully the Anna Louise Inn—a small, local nonprofit that provides affordable housing to single women. 

But Christians aren’t the only ones fired up.

The Greater Cincinnati Homeless Coalition and Occupy Cincinnati have joined the battle and—as Dawn found out—so have the 17 interfaith denominations of the Metropolitan Area Religious Coalition of Cincinnati, which adopted the cause as part of its campaign for affordable housing.

Listen to Dawn’s report about this battle for the Anna Louise Inn.
