The Democratic National Committee has just named The Rev. Brenda Bartella-Peterson as their new senior adviser on religious outreach. I’ve gotten to know Brenda over the past year while she served as the executive director of the Clergy Leadership Network. She has enormous talent that will be put to great use at the DNC.
"Brenda will act as liaison to religious organizations and will encourage people to let their faith inform their participation in democracy," DNC Chairman Terry McAuliffe said...
"Brenda has dedicated her life to showing us all how religion and politics intersect with integrity," McAuliffe said. "We are proud to have her join the DNC, in order to spread John Kerry's positive vision to people of all faiths."
Everyone involved with CLN is excited to see her take on these new responsibilities.
