Evangelical churches in Indiana offer support in a variety of ways to economically vulnerable families in their communities — whether through food banks, job training classes, English tutoring or other means. When it comes to policy proposals that impact the same families and individuals, it can be confusing to know what is most helpful. This Indiana-focused conversation will help you understand what is on the table and how you can be part of lifting millions out of poverty.

Kimberly Majeski, associate professor of biblical studies at Anderson University, hosted the conversation. Aaron Perry, associate professor of pastoral theology and leadership at Indiana Wesleyan University; Tim Streett, assistant director at Shepherd Community Center; and Zach Szmara, national director of Immigrant Connection, offered a framework and basis for considering bipartisan solutions to complex issues. You’ll also hear from Sen. Mike Braun and former state Sen. Jim Merritt. Policy updates from NAE staff highlighted information on tax credits, immigration, predatory lending and paid family leave.
