Morally Uplifting


Donna Brazile became the first African-American woman to run a major U.S. presidential campaign when she took the helm of the Gore-Leiberman effort in 2000. The grassroots organizer and TV pundit joins a host of local interfaith leaders — including Rev. Phyllis Hunt of Metropolitan Community Church, Rev. Charles McKenzie of the Rainbow PUSH Coalition, Rev. Marjorie Bowens-Wheatley of the UU church, WMNF newsman Rob Lorei, Linda Osmundson of CASA and Birgit Van Hout of Community Tampa Bay — for a roundtable discussion titled "Speaking Out on Moral Values: Setting Priorities that Really Matter." Organizers say the panel is a response to the growth of the religious right's influence and will look at a broad range of social issues, from health care to living wages. The event is sponsored by the Defending Democracy Project of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Tampa. Tues., May 9, 7—9 p.m., Comfort Inn Conference Center, 820 E. Busch Blvd., Tampa, free, 813-849-3919.
