CEIE Webinar: “Pathways in Solidarity: Faith Action Network in WA State"
Posted: November 15, 2022
Thursday, Dec. 8, noon–1:30 p.m.
This is a virtual and in-person event; a light lunch will be provided for in-person attendees.
A panel of Faith Action Network’s board members and advocates, convened by Elise DeGooyer, Seattle U alumna and executive director, will share about the organization's efforts in solidarity with more than 160 faith communities across Washington state, advocating for a more just, peaceful and sustainable world.
Elise DeGooyer serves as the executive director of Faith Action Network, a statewide, multifaith, advocacy and social justice organization. Her experience in mission-driven work in human services—in food banks, for unhoused people, and through advocacy on poverty issues—animates her theological questions. She is a lifelong resident of Washington state, born and raised in Yakima. She completed her undergraduate education at Gonzaga University and has been making Seattle home since the 1980s. Her graduate studies at Maryknoll School of Theology focused on liberation theologies—and at Seattle University, on pastoral leadership. Participation in forums like the Beijing Women’s Conference, Mary’s Pence, and the Parliament of World Religions continue to shape her global vision. She has seen with her own eyes how faith-based action can transform the world.
