My post last week introduced The Green Bible. This release of a green text version brought some controversy, but through discussion, it also pulled environmentalism and faith into mainstream dialogue. Carefully crafted media and activism often make stories out of issues that otherwise go under the radar. For example, Nicholas Kristof’s follow-up on his Occupy Wall Street piece in the New York Times offers a hope and a dream that this community of activists will set the issue of income inequality on the national agenda and build a bridge towards a more compassionate dialogue in the 2012 election.
What do you think? Does the Green Bible or Occupy Wall Street champion an issue to the attention of a wider audience successfully? What are some other examples?
