Rev. Dr. Delman Coates is senior pastor of Mt. Ennon Baptist Church in Clinton, Md., and founder of the Our Money Campaign. Coates is committed to a ministry of spiritual renewal, social justice, and community revitalization. He ministers at churches, seminaries, and conferences across the United States. The Our Money Campaign is an issue-based advocacy campaign that seeks to mainstream the academic insights of Modern Monetary Theory (MMT) to solve some of our nation’s greatest social and economic challenges. Our Money seeks to build a diverse, grassroots, bi-partisan movement that endeavors to address such things as poverty, wealth concentration, unemployment, affordable housing, health care, public education, the climate crisis, and household debt by educating citizens, civic leaders, clergy, activists, and policymakers about the power of money creation to unleash the untapped potential of our economy.
