posted on March 2, 2021

Politico Magazine’s Zack Stanton interviews the Rev. Serene Jones, president of Union Theological Seminary, about the religious left. Jones said, “The big misconception is that the progressive religious voice in this country is suddenly coming to the fore. It has been there a long time.” She argues that the pandemic in particular has encouraged calls for action. She said, “We are going to see more and more how the religious left is also an interreligious reality. It is not just the Christian religious left; it is a religious left that includes people from many religious traditions and spiritual people who may not have a specific tradition. That is going to keep growing.”
