Catholic Sisters from 24 congregations in four states this March will launch a yearlong, live-streamed conversation series on the leading social justice issues of our time. Each episode is free and open to the public.
Titled “Exploring Intersections: Catholic Sisters on Racism, Migration and Climate,” each month this series will focus on a different social issue in a thought-provoking and engaging conversation. Three panelists, including Catholic Sisters, will bring unique perspectives to each session.
“This series is intended to provide a forum for constructive conversation on the big issues of our day, and how each intersects with the major themes of racism, migration and climate,” says Sister Anna Marie Reha, SSND. “We’re looking forward to lively, nuanced conversations among our panelists and to hearing what our audience members have to say on these topics.”
Topics include gender equity, human trafficking, gun violence, economic justice, food security, restorative justice, affordable housing, educational justice, equitable access to health care and more.
The conversations will be held as a free, public Zoom webinar and streamed on YouTube at 3 p.m. the second Wednesday of each month, beginning March 10. For those who want to watch or listen on their own schedule, the recordings of the episodes will be available on YouTube and as a podcast.
