What is Jubilee? A compassionate or Jubilee economy begins with the idea of debt forgiveness and then goes deeper to welcome all in from exile. We have a choice to shift our thinking and construct an economy that is co-operative, communal and generous.
The Rev. Robert Rhodes and Christ Church Cathedral representatives will share how they are making investments in Jubilee. Members from Jurisdiction Resident Advisory Board (J-Rab) – which advocates for social justice and represents more than 15,000 public housing residents – will also speak at the forum about their work and how people can support it. Author & Community Advocate, Peter Block, will also lead a reflection conversation.
Jubilee Forums convene a range of citizens, business, social service, faith and neighborhood people, to identify and begin to shift the landscape of credit and debt in our neighborhoods. It is a project of consciousness and commitment.
Free parking will be located in the lot across from First Unitarian Church at 536 Linton Street, Cincinnati, OH 45219. Light Food and refreshments will be provided.
