John Shuck hosts Beloved Community and Progressive Spirit

On “The Beloved Community” we address the philosophical and spiritual foundations for non-violence, activism, political engagement and peace building. We hear voices of those who are building the Beloved Community right here in Portland. The goal is to make connections and to gain inspiration, solidarity, wisdom, and insight for your own activism.
