In this video, Rev. Bloom shares his story of working for justice with faith communities in the Greater Seattle Area after moving to Seattle from Washington DC in 1975. He met the Rev Dr. Bill Cate when Cate came to preach at University Baptist Church, where Rev. Bloom was a pastoral minister at the time. He became involved at the Church Council in 1978, and immediately got involved in housing issues – including his involvement in the founding of the Seattle Displacement Coalition in 1979 with John Fox.
