    St. Francis in the Foothills United Methodist Church

    “A lecture by Dr. Lisa Sanchez, University of Arizona School of Government and Public Policy, who will address where ordinary citizens can go and what they can do, beyond our polarized politics.

    The second in a series of lectures/events at St. Francis in the Foothills United Methodist Church (River/Swan) designed to educate, confront, inspire and celebrate our politics and our democracy. For generations, St. Francis UMC has been known as a spiritual community devoted to social justice, activism, building awareness and supporting those who are disenfranchised and disempowered. In this critical lead-up to the most important general election of the past 50 years, it remains fully committed to those ideals and principles.”
