Gerald Britt's Blog

Readers may browse through all of Gerald's blog postings by reviewing his complete archives here.

A high profile community leader for many years, Gerald has strong ties to the political, faith and business communities in Texas. Gerald most recently served as Senior Pastor for the New Mount Moriah Missionary Baptist Church, located in the heart of far South Dallas. During his 22 years there, he led the church in significant growth and organizational change. Gerald currently serves as the VP of Public Policy & Community Program Development for Central Dallas Ministries (CDM). Through his work in the church and surrounding neighborhoods as well as years of leadership in Dallas Area Interfaith, Gerald has distinguished himself as one of Dallas’ most influential community leaders.

He has been out front on many city issues, from advocating for better care for Parkland Hospital patients to increasing voter turnout in South Dallas, among others. A tireless advocate, Gerald also writes at Change the Wind and authors a monthly column for The Dallas Morning News. In fact, he's a prolific writer.

You can learn even more about his accomplishments here. Gerald offers his reason for keeping this blog:

So what will this blog be about? Obviously, advocacy from a public policy standpoint. I've found out that what influences public policy conversation stems from virtually every influence on the thinking of the advocate: the places you've been, the people you know, the positions you've held and the experiences you've had. What I hope to do is to share with you my understanding and reflections on how we must address issues of poverty from a public policy standpoint. I hope you'll respond and I hope you'll share with me the resources that shape your thinking as well.
We are thrilled that Rev. Britt has joined EverydayCitizen.
