A Conversation with COPS/Metro and SA Community Leaders

This week we will have a conversation with COPS/Metro, SA Clergy, and San Antonio District 4 Councilwoman Adriana Rocha Garcia, PhD about the upcoming city ballot, Proposition B and how local parishes can get involved with local government and the issues directly effecting local communities.Pub Theology San Antonio is a dialogue group that discusses faith, our community and creating the common good. Bekah Stolhandske McNeel hosting. About our guests:COPS/Metro is a coalition of congregations, schools, and unions coming together so that we can effectively act on behalf of families. COPS/Metro works within each of these institutions to identify a diverse, broad-based leadership that can connect to each other in new ways in order to act effectively on behalf of children, families, and neighborhoods. By learning to work together for the public good, COPS/Metro leaders are able to work with the business community and elected officials to make San Antonio a better place for families.As important as the issues that COPS/Metro address are, the relationships that leaders develop and foster within their institutions and among leaders from the racially, ethnically, and religiously diverse institutions that comprise these organizations are the foundation of broad-based community organizing.
