Sr. Durstyne Farnan serves as a representative to the United Nations for the Dominican Sisters Conference, an organization of Dominican sisters and associates from across the nation.
Farnan, known as Sister Dusty, talks with Sister Maxine about how she helps Dominican women "in bringing their voice to the U.N. on behalf of civil society." As Sister Dusty tells Sister Maxine: "We are trying to represent some of the issues that Dominicans worldwide are really concerned about, such as climate, such as nuclear weapons, such as homelessness, the extraction from Indigenous areas, particularly in the Amazon, mining extractions."
