"A variety of religious voices have been prominent in the 2008 presidential campaign to date, and to the surprise of many observers, these voices include religious activists with liberal and progressive perspectives. They describe a growing movement focused on justice and the common good. Where did this movement come from, and how might it influence this year's election?"

Participants:

  • Laura Olson, Political Science professor, Clemson University
  • Jennifer Butler, Executive Director, Faith in Public Life
  • Chris Korzen, Executive Director, Catholics United

Moderator:
