Divided We Fail 'Faith Week' to Raise Health and Financial Security Issues in Communities of Faith
Date:11/16/2007

November 17-25 Places of Worship in Chicago & Across the Nation Will Discuss How Their Communities Can Bring Change on Key Issues

CHICAGO, Nov. 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- From November 17 through the 25, AARP will be reaching out to more than 200 diverse communities of faith to ask them to reflect on the most important domestic issues facing the nation. With Thanksgiving approaching, religious leaders will be calling on their communities to create change by reviving the American Dream for their children and grandchildren. Recognizing the importance of health care and lifetime financial security issues and what each individual can do to inspire change is a critical step that these communities can take together.

In conjunction with faith and community leaders across the nation, such as the Samuel De Witt Proctor Conference and the National Council of Churches, AARP has secured Faith Week activities that will reach more than 100,000 individuals across the nation in more than 50 cities.

In Chicago, the efforts include Trinity United Church of Christ, Christ Church of Oak Brook and Saint Daniel the Prophet church. Members of these communities will be able to hear the Divided We Fail message during services and will have access to materials so they can create change in their homes and communities by sharing their stories and learning what they can do.

"The power of religious and faith-based communities taking action is widely recognized in Illinois," said Evelyn Gooden, AARP Illinois State President. "From providing aid to the community's most vulnerable, to moving into action in times of crisis and need, their ability to create change during critical times is unquestionable. Our work with these communities is a natural fit in that our Divided We Fail effort seeks to give voice to millions of Americans who believe that health and financial security are the most pressing domestic issues facing our nation."
