When it comes to “social” justice issues, there does not seem to be a meeting space for the political right and the political left in the Catholic Church, so I invited Louis Damani Jones on to ‘Talking Catholic’ to have an authentic dialogue about social justice, immigration, and the critical race theory and how they work within Catholic theology.
Louis Damani Jones is the Program and Mission Alignment Coordinator for Catholic Urban Programs, a social ministry of the Diocese of Belleville, IL. He is a graduate student of clinical social work at Washington University in St. Louis, as well as a fellow at the Gephardt Institute for Civic and Community Engagement. He received the 2020 Cardinal Bernardin Award for New Leadership from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. He is a co-host of the Podcast, “Living Communion.”
