ESA: Sign Manhattan Declaration

by Ruth Moon
In an e-mail update, Ron Sider urges readers to sign the Manhattan Declaration. He says:

For decades I have sought to promote what the Manhattan Declaration calls a “truly consistent ethic of love and life for all humans in all circumstances.” I agree strongly with the Declaration, that the sanctity of human life, the historical definition of marriage, and robust religious freedom are under serious threat at this point in our history. The Declaration does NOT say that these are the most important moral issues of our time. It only says that these are crucial moral issues.

ESA also advocated for “Buy Nothing Day,” or buying nothing on “Black Friday,” the day after Thanksgiving.
Regardless of what causes the hype about climate change, evangelicals are obligated to be informed about the issue and to act.
Many workers each year are systematically underpaid, a new study finds.

A recent study (Broken Laws, Unprotected Workers) found that low-wage workers in New York City, Chicago, and Los Angeles had an average of $51 stolen from their weekly earnings. The illegal underpayment or non-payment of workers’ wages affects millions of workers each year, forcing many to choose between rent and food.
