2013 People’s Prayer Breakfast

Safiyyah Abdullah reciting a poem.

People from across the country joined together to pray and to stand in unity with those suffering economic hardship and inequality in our nation;

The emphasis on this years speakers and discussion panel was centered on the topic; How can faith communities can get better involved within/with Social Justice Movements, and how can people involved within Social Justice Movements involve the faith communities more effectively (the engagement with each other).

Speakers were:
Rev. Graylan Scott Hagler
Afeef Khan
The Buddhist from Kunzang Palyul Cholin and others
Rev. Cortly CD Witherspoon
Members of a local Hari Krishna community
Lena Ibrahim (student advocate for Palestinian Hungerstrikers)
DC Housing for all
