This week our guest is Reverend Graylan Scott Hagler, a Senior Pastor of Plymouth Congregational United Church of Christ, born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland. Hagler received a Bachelor’s Degree in Religion from Oberlin College, Ohio, in 1976. Rev. Hagler is the Past National President of Ministers for Racial, Social and Economic Justice. He's a long-time social justice advocate throughout the District of Columbia and beyond. This last Monday, the DC Council held a hearing to repeal the Fair Minimum Wage Act of 2017 (Initiative #77) which the DC electorate voted to approved on June 19th. Rev. Hagler most recently testified before the DC Council against the repeal of Initiative 77 as did I. Let’s hear why!
