The immigration crisis, poverty, racial equity, human rights. These make up the foundation of the Rev. Dr. J. Herbert Nelson, II’s seven years as Stated Clerk of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) During his time as the chief ecclesial officer of the denomination, Nelson traveled domestically and internationally to address some of the world’s most pressing human rights and social justice issues.

In the third of a four-part series, the Nelsons share their joint call to address these pressing issues.
