Today we’d like to introduce you to Horace Sheffield.
Hi Horace, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
I was born in a family that has engaged in social change for 2 generations before me and now four including my daughter. Being exposed to how the rank and file buttressed the labor and civil rights movements as a child help me understand how people can organize and change society. Consequently, I got involved in anti-Vietnam war activities, was elected to the Detroit Board of Education at the age of 21, and has continued, even as a pastor, to address the plight of the poor.
