Politics and Christianity are two things that society tells us should never be brought up in polite conversation. Well, in this episode we’re diving into both topics and how they intersect.
Justin Giboney is an attorney, political strategist, and ordained minister in Atlanta, GA. He is also the Co-Founder and President of the AND Campaign, which is a coalition of urban Christians who are determined to address the sociopolitical arena with the compassion and conviction of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
The AND Campaign seeks to educate and organize Christians for civic and cultural engagement that results in better representation, more just and compassionate policies and a healthier political culture.
Justin has served as a delegate for the Democratic National Convention and as the co-chair of Obama for America’s Gen44-Atlanta initiative.
Mr. Giboney has managed successful campaigns for elected officials in the state and referendums relating to the city’s transportation and water infrastructure.
He’s the co-author of Compassion (&) Conviction—The AND Campaign’s Guide to Faithful Civic Engagement and has written op-eds for publications such as Christianity Today and The Hill.
