​Washington, DC - Speaking this morning on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” program, Reverend Jim Wallis addressed the current crisis in Flint, MI by saying “Race is in the air we breathe and in the water we drink in Flint … I don’t think if it was 8000 white kids this would’ve happened."

Rev. Wallis was in New York to discuss his latest book, released this week, America’s Original Sin: Racism, White Privilege, and the Bridge to a New America (Brazos Press). 

“If white Christians acted more Christian than white, black parents would have less to fear for their children,” says Rev. Wallis in the book.

Rev. Wallis, an evangelical, also addressed the GOP primary this week, saying on CNN’s “Newsroom” (segment begins 9:28:43) that “When he is deliberately fueling racial fear and hatred, Donald Trump is poisoning and polluting the American political landscape."

WASHINGTON, Sept. 29, 2015 -- Pope Francis' visit to the U.S. sparked inspiration and action among hundreds of Christian, Muslim, Jewish and other national religious leaders at the 2-day interfaith Coming Together in Faith on Climate gathering September 24 and 25 at Washington National Cathedral. The events celebrated the Pope's leadership on climate change, and top leaders pledged to make an impact in their houses of worship and inspire their congregations and communities to care for creation.

To mark Pope Francis' visit to the United States, Sojourners has partnered with NextGen Climate to convene key interfaith leaders and activists to welcome the Pope and his call to action on climate change. The effort, including a full-page advertisement Friday in the New York Times and several other newspapers, features a letter signed by 36 interfaith leaders and activists including Rev. Jim Wallis, President and Founder of Sojourners. 

Today, a group of Christian leaders released a video by Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton explaining how she would work as president to address poverty both in the United States and around the world.
