Christopher speaks from a broad, international perspective. He led the Human Thread Campaign to raise awareness, direct action and build solidarity with garment workers, and he previously served in multicultural and low-income communities in the U.S. and Latin America. Everyone can make an impact with their money, and this is especially true for people over 60, who have significantly more wealth than younger generations.
Erick’s responsibilities include overseeing the Refresh Milwaukee sustainability plan and coordinating the city’s involvement with local, national and global partnerships on environmental sustainability. He serves as a leader on the Milwaukee City-County Task Force on Climate and Economic Equity, which has plans to dramatically reduce area carbon emissions and use a green economy to create jobs while addressing deeply entrenched racial inequities.
Adam directs the port’s multimodal, commercial and passenger operations, which generate over $100 million in local economic activity annually and face a growing challenge from climate change. He oversees implementation of the StewardSHIP initiative to promote sustainable policies and environmental stewardship in handling freight.
Misbah, an attorney, has an undergraduate degree in environmental toxicology and is based at UWM’s Center for Water Policy. His career has included a focus on environmental science and law within the larger context of promoting social justice.

“Constitutional Rights to Religious Liberty: The Supreme Court’s Recent Cases on the Establishment and Free Exercise Clauses of the First Amendment”
“This academic and interactive program will focus on two, recent decisions of our High Court, addressing the meaning and impact of the Constitution’s protections against governmental establishment of religion and preservations of the right to its free exercise. In addition to describing the factual and legal bases for those landmark rulings, James L. Santelle, the former United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Wisconsin (and long-time supporter of the missions and activities of the Interfaith Conference), will comment on the practical significance of the Supreme Court’s decisions for religious and non-faith-affiliated entities. This 90-minute gathering will also include abundant opportunities for participants to ask questions, offer perspectives, and otherwise comment on these important and topical issues.”

A feature of our 50th Annual Virtual Luncheon, it was created with 3rd year Marquette University student, Ryan Hagan. Ryan is working on a degree in Cognitive Science and Digital Media. He's made other videos for the Marquette Wire, Generations Against Bullying (YouTube), and Walnut Way. His personal objective is to "create high-quality, socially relevant, thought-provoking content." We appreciate and sincerely thank Ryan for his time, talent, technical abilities, and especially his patience in working virtually with me to deliver the video I envisioned.
