    By Danelle King: I recently had the pleasure of speaking with Dr. Helene Slessarev-Jamir who serves as a co-chair for the 2014 SCUPE Congress on Urban Ministry (to be held in Chicago on June, 23-26). Dr. Sleesarev-Jamir resided on the south side of Chicago for many years and now teaches at the Claremont School of Theology in Southern California. Dr. Slessarev-Jamir has done labor organizing in Washington, D.C. and community organizing in Chicago. She believes in not only serving as a scholar, but as a person actively seeking justice in our communities.
