"The African American Ministers Leadership Council (AAMLC) is a part of the African American Religious Affairs (AARA) Department, a program of People For the American Way and People For the American Way Foundation. AARA endeavors to build a strong association of progressive pastors, clergy, theologians, seminarians and ministry lay leaders who will encourage African American churches and communities to become more civically engaged and promote social justice programs and policies in areas of public education, health care, equal justice, civic participation and economic justice for all. Representing women and men across the country, leaders participate in strategic trainings, issue briefings, projects and partnerships to faithfully and effectively provide a prophetic, progressive voice and presence that counters right wing, conservative religious rhetoric and advances a vision of “a beloved community.” AARA is recognized by its members as a ministry of 7 initiatives that work with Christian men and women who believe in help and not harm, power and not pain, and hope in the face of hopelessness."
