A Recap of Blog Action Day

October 16, 2008

I thought that after reading my contribution to Blog Action Day some of you might be interested to see what others had to say on the subject of poverty yesterday. Here’s a short list of some other blogs that that covered the event:

  • The Leadership Conference on Civil Rights wrote about the “Half in Ten” campaign to cut poverty which they work on in alliance with the ACORN, the Center for American Progress Action Fund and the Coalition on Human Needs.
  • Global Voices had an interesting recap of what some Iranian bloggers had to say for Blog Action Day.
  • FCNL’s very own Stephen Donahoe wrote on Sustainable Good about Outreach International’s unique approach to poverty and international development
  • Sr. Julie from A Nuns Life hosted an excellent discussion on Jon Sobrino’s book No Salvation Outside the Poor.
  • Faith and AIDS closed the day with a beautiful collection of prayers calling for protection of and justice for the most vulnerable members of our society.

If you know of any other good entries for Blog Action Day, feel free leave a comment and add to the list! Did any other Quaker (or Quaker-affiliated) blogs write things?
