If you walk by the Buckham Room on the second Thursday of the month, you will see over thirty San Mateo County faith leaders gathered to address the most pressing social justice issues of our time. The Faith Leaders’ Solidarity Cohort is led by Penny and Amie through the Peninsula Solidarity Network. The first year of the cohort met from October 2017 through May 2018, and we are happy to announce that we will be continuing on for a second year from October 2018 through May 2019.
We are grateful to the Silicon Valley Community Foundation, who have awarded us a grant to support the second year of the cohort. During our second year, we will focus on expanding our influence into the public sphere, through engaging our faith communities, civic leaders, and business leaders in working towards a more just society. The Solidarity Cohort represents yet another way that transformation is happening, both within and outside the walls of CCSM.
