Upcoming Webinar: Sam Heath

Join us as we welcome Sam Heath, community leader and manager of the Evangelical Network with Equal Justice USA, on August 25 from 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM (CST) for a lunchtime discussion about faith, life, and how both influence the pursuit of social equity.

Sam leads Equal Justice USA’s (EJUSA) engagement with evangelical people and spaces. His faith background enables him to tell stories about the realities of justice and injustice in America and hold together a view of the world as a place both exceptional and exploitative.

Before coming on board with EJUSA in 2021, Sam taught high school history for 10 years in North Carolina and Virginia. He has a B.A. in education and psychology from University of North Carolina Chapel Hill and a master’s in theology, ethics, and culture from the University of Virginia. Heath’s diverse background will surely inspire an informative discussion around faith and civic advocacy in this latest CLS discussion!
