Members of Interfaith Illinois, Inc., participated in a Meet and Greet in August with Illinois governor gubernatorial candidate J.B. Pritzker. The organization is comprised of hundreds of congregations and clergymen from various denominations and religions who advocate for social justice, equality, and education.
Bishop Dr. Claude Porter, chairman of Interfaith Illinois Inc., and founder Proviso Baptist Church and Proviso-Leyden Council for Community Action, and Rev. Clay Evans, chairman emeritus, Interfaith Illinois Inc., and the retired pastor of the Fellowship Baptist Church organized the meeting to make a declaration of inclusiveness and unity.
“It’s important that diversity and inclusiveness are at the forefront of the democratic process. We are committed to leveraging our resources for the purpose of assisting disadvantaged resident and communities in Illinois,” Bishop Porter said.
