Rev. Jim Wallis of Sojourners was named to the President’s Council for Faith-Based & Neighborhood Partnerships today. Wallis advised the last two administrations, from the HUD Center for Community and Interfaith Partnerships under President Clinton to working with David Kuo and the Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives under President Bush. “The launch of the President’s Council on Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships recommits our nation to the necessary and positive vision of partnership between the public sector and the faith community” Wallis says. “It is significant that both the elimination of poverty and the reduction of abortion are central goals within the administration and this new initiative. This indicates a shift towards a deeper and more constructive engagement with the faith-community and civil society around substantive policy issues.”
