We speak with Claire Markham, Outreach and Campaign Manager for the Faith and Progressive Policy Initiative at American Progress. She joins Common Threads to talk about Religious Liberties in the United States.
Prior to joining American Progress, she worked as the field associate and minimum-wage lobbyist for NETWORK, A National Catholic Social Justice Lobby. Previously, she worked in Catholic education as a high school teacher and college campus minister. Much of her professional and academic work has focused on theological foundations for more inclusive faith communities and building communities of faith where political activism is a natural extension of a rich spiritual life.
