Please feel free to provide a short bio about yourself or the work of your organization (no more than 3 paragraphs)
My present activism is in the areas of faith-based and interfaith peace and reconciliation, with a particular emphasis on Islam. My own Faith is Evangelical Christian. I differ from many Evangelical Christians, in that I believe non-Christian Faith traditions, worship and teaching also lead to communion with God and to unity with the Creator's sacred, just and compassionate will. I now worship most frequently with Quaker and Muslim congregations.
I also consider myself a democratic, decentralist Marxist. At other times in my life I have held anarchist, atheist and agnostic views, and have been a seeker in many other spiritual traditions.
In my present activist work I support, and sometimes try to create, interfaith peace and human rights initiatives uniting Muslims and non-Muslims, and promote related theoretical and political scholarship and discussions.
My past activism has included anti-poverty work, labor union and farmworker support, anti-war and nuclear disarmament work, and community co-op organizing. I have a law degree, and have practiced in the areas of disability rights, worker-side employment and trade union law, and criminal appeals. I am not currently practicing law.
