The Faith & Politics Institute will recognize Congressmen Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) and Chip Pickering (R-Miss.) at its second John Lewis-Amo Houghton Leadership Award dinner. Robert G. Liberatore, formerly of Daimler, and Faith & Politics Institute co-founder Anne Bartley will also receive the award.
In co-leading The Faith & Politics Institute’s “Courage and Creativity” Congressional Pilgrimage to Mississippi in March 2008, congressmen Thompson and Pickering demonstrated courageous leadership in bridging political and personal divides in order to better serve the people of Mississippi.
