Peter Laarman and Charlene Sinclair

Peter Laarman is a United Church of Christ minister who served as senior minister of New York's Judson Memorial Church and then as executive director of LA's Progressive Christians Uniting before retiring in 2014. He remains deeply involved in national and regional social justice projects touching on race, class, and religion. 

Charlene Sinclair is an organizer, thinker, and writer whose work centers on the intersection of race, gender, and economic justice. She founded the Center for Religion, Race, and Economic Democracy and serves currently as a consultant, trainer, and adviser to leading social change organizations and individual prophetic leaders. Strongly influenced by the pathbreaking thought of the late James Cone, Dr. Sinclair helps to fashion strategies that embrace a liberationist approach to faith and spirituality in the context of popular struggles for racial and economic justice.
