Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary

Garrett-Evangelical’s Black faculty, working with the Center for the Church and the Black Experience, are part of the scholars' think tank working with the local chapter of the National Organization of Black Law Executives. Several of them presented theological responses at the Understanding Youth Gang Violence workshop (co-sponsored by Garrett-Evangelical on May 6, 2011). They will continue our work to help reduce violence among youth and understand this commitment to be interconnected with the Campaign for Children in Poverty since many of these youth get involved in gangs as a result of living in impoverished communities.

President Phil Amerson and Dr. Pamela Lightsey are now members of the mayor of Evanston's newly formed Violence Prevention Task Force. They have made a commitment to involve several of Garrett-Evangelical’s students to work this summer as mentors for children in the city. Here again, we see this work as connected with the Campaign.
