Newsday reports on a “Faith and Social Justice Roundtable” held this evening at the First Unitarian Church, corner of Monroe Place and Pierrepont Street, at which U.S. Senator and presidential aspirant Bernie Sanders was the featured participant. Also participating in the roundtable were Cornel West and Linda Sarsour, executive director of the Arab American Association of New York. The Rev. Al Sharpton was scheduled to be there, but did not appear.
The Newsday story reports that the event “filled every pew” at the church, but gives little detail on what was said there, other than that when Sen. Sanders was asked if the present state of income inequality was morally acceptable, the audience replied “No!”
Were any readers present who could give more details on the event?
