Rev. Alvin Herring is the executive director of the national group, Faith In Action. He credits his group with a recent success in Florida with the passage of a ballot initiative to restore voting rights to people with felony convictions.
“One could certainly assert that more conservative voices have been given more sway,” Herring says. “But we’re here to say that there are other people of faith, with other ideas about how to build a beloved community, that are working every day to impact this country and change our country.”
