Democratic Faith Working Group

In 2005, I was appointed to convene the House Democratic Faith Working Group (DFWG) which was created by Leader Nancy Pelosi. I subsequently enlisted Emanuel Cleaver, Rosa DeLauro, Nita Lowey and David Price to help me launch the effort.

Over the years, the DFWG has met frequently and often brought in faith leaders to discuss and formulate approaches that would do justice to Micah 6:8 and Matthew 25.  The group successfully navigated through some pretty thorny issues, one of which was the drafting, debating and passage of the Affordable Care Act.

Several members of the DFWG recorded a video response to President Trump's Joint Meeting Address to Congress on March 1, 2017.
