In the 2010 ‘Citizens United’ case, the Supreme Court ruled that Corporations are ‘people’. But some legal scholars point out that the legal consequences for misbehavior by corporate ‘people’ are typically far less certain or severe than for such misbehavior by flesh and blood people. An increasing number of Americans are confronting such preferential treatment. What they are doing, what you can do…that’s our challenge today-‘When Money Speaks with Faith’.
Challenge 2.0 airs on MeTV on Sunday Mornings at 7:30 AM.
Host: Jeff Renner

Challenge 2.0 Overview
The Treacy Levine Center, in partnership with Weigle Broadcasting and Seattle Community Cable TV, is announcing the Challenge 2.0. With host Jeff Renner, panelists from many faith and wisdom traditions will gather to take on the challenges that face us today. Panelists will bring their wisdom to the table to help us envision the future we all desire, and what we can do to get there. Panelists will bring a capacity to listen, learn and strive toward love for all the human family.
About the Treacy Levine Center
The center’s roots lie in the pioneering television interfaith dialogue program, “Challenge,” begun in 1960 in response to widespread fear among Americans concerning the prospect of a Catholic president. As an outgrowth of that dialogue, participants Rabbi Raphael Levine and Father William Treacy founded the Treacy Levine Center in 1966, under its original name, Camp Brotherhood. Now that the camp has sold to Camp Korey, the Treacy Levine Center is refocusing its mission to cross the bridge to our common humanity through media, events and encouraging personal action.
