Chuck has served as Director of the Interfaith Council for Peace and Justice (ICPJ) for over eight years, a position which grows out of his long-standing commitment to service, faith, and justice.
As Director, Chuck’s work focuses on bringing together people of different faiths and backgrounds (including people who are not religious) for shared work to promote peace and justice. Chuck’s work includes efforts to reduce and prevent violence, promote racial and economic justice, end hunger, and promote religious inclusivity. Chuck supports grassroots activism and helps people learn the necessary skills to promote positive change in their communities.
Chuck was a 2006 Michigan Political Leader Fellow at the Center for Progressive Leadership. In 2011, Chuck was named Michigan’s Outstanding Young Religious Leader by the Michigan Jaycees.
In addition to Chuck’s work with the Interfaith Council for Peace and Justice, he is an Adopt-A-Park coordinator for Winewood-Thaler Park and serves on the Ann Arbor Transportation Association’s Ann Arbor District Advisory Council.
Chuck’s wife, Nancy Shore, is the Director of the getDowntown program, which encourages downtown employees to choose sustainable transportation. She also serves on the board of SOS Community Services.
Their daughter, Camille, is 18-months-old and has not yet made an endorsement in this campaign. If we can get a video of her saying “vote for daddy,” we’ll post it.
