The Ignatian Peacemaking Lecture entitled, “Truth to Reconciling: 21st Century Poverty and the Challenge of Healing our Nation,” will take place on Tuesday, Feb. 13, from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Weasler Auditorium.
Sister Simone Campbell, SSS, and executive director of NETWORK, a national Catholic social justice lobby organization headquartered in Washington, D.C., will speak at the event. Sister Simone will share stories of the people she met during her travels across the United States on NETWORK’s “Nuns on the Bus” tours. In recounting these encounters, she will address themes of poverty, economic inequality, and health care. Drawing from her experience with nonviolence, public policy, and peacemaking, she will offer pathways to incorporate social justice and reconciliation into the fabric of our own lives.
