In this episode, we interview Stephanie Summers, the CEO of the Center for Public Justice, a nonpartisan Christian think tank engaged in public policy development and civic education. Stephanie also serves as a Trustee of Eastern University, where she received her M.S. in Nonprofit Management, and is a recipient of the inaugural Duke Divinity Reflective Leadership Award.
