Evangelical churches in Oklahoma offer support in a variety of ways to economically vulnerable families in their communities — whether through food banks, job training classes, English tutoring or other means. When it comes to policy proposals that impact the same families and individuals, it can be confusing to know what is most helpful. This free Oklahoma-focused NAE webinar will help you understand what is on the table and how you can be part of lifting millions out of poverty.
Adrian Hinkle, vice president of academic affairs at Southwestern Christian University, and Eric Costanzo, pastor of South Tulsa Baptist Church, offered a framework and basis for considering bipartisan solutions to complex issues. You will also hear from John Lepine, principal of Crossover Preparatory Academy in North Tulsa, and Deni Fholer, president of Isaiah 58 In His Service and licensed social worker with the Indian Health Care Resource Center. Policy updates from NAE staff highlighted information on tax credits, immigration, predatory lending and paid family leave.
