NAOMI- Interfaith Social Justice Group

Air Date:
Heard On Route 51

This week Route 51 examines NAOMI, a central Wisconsin interfaith group that’s working to address social justice issues, and the needs of the poor and disadvantaged. Guests will be three religious leaders who are involved in the coalition: Father Steven Brice of the Church of St. Anne, Reverend Gary Froseth of St. Stephen Lutheran Church, and Rabbi Dan Danson of the Mount Sinai Congregation. NAOMI stands for North central Area congregations Organized to Make an Impact. The coalition involves at least nine area houses of worship. Group members testified at this year’s hearings on state budget priorities, and are also involved in efforts to save bus service in the Wausau metropolitan area.
