The office's specific priorities will be: poverty reduction, abortion reduction, encouraging fatherhood, and interfaith relations (these are all things Jesus and I support.)
The President also created a new Advisory Council and appointed a few people of whom I'm a fan:
- Judith Vredenburgh, Big Brothers/Big Sisters of America
- Dr. Frank Page, Southern Baptist Convention
- Rev. Jim Wallis, Sojourners Washington
- Richard Stearns, World Vision
Here's a nice Q&A with the new director of the office - incidentally, the same guy who fought for Rick Warren to give the inaugural prayer and coordinated the Saddleback Forum during the campaign. Plus, he's kinda cute and in my age range. I think.
