Philadelphia Interfaith Group Expands POWER
Fresh off recent successes rallying urban Jewish, Muslim, and Christian congregations to enter the political fray,
one of Philadelphia's largest interfaith coalitions has now set its sights on the region...
At least 50 interfaith religious leaders from across Philadelphia and its neighboring counties wrote an open letter calling on Pennsylvanians to vote against “xenophobia, bigotry, misogyny and racism.” Local signees include Philadelphians Organized to Witness, Empower and Rebuild and Philadelphia NAACP President Rodney Muhammad.
Leaders from Philadelphians Organized to Witness, Empower and Rebuild, the NAACP and the Black Clergy of Philadelphia and Vicinity are encouraging people to vote on Election Day and noted efforts to monitor any problems.
