Faith and Social Justice Panel Discussion
Wednesday, January 26
7:00pm, Textor 102

Dr. King's messages of non-violence, servant leadership, and hope for a brighter tomorrow were based in his spiritual beliefs.  He often drew from religious texts and stories in his speeches to convey these messages and made both faith and social justice the core of his work.  In today's society, issues of gay rights, immigration, poverty, health care, and other topics seem to make their way into headlines everyday.  At the same time, there has been a religious resurgence in the world, some in part of events of the past decade (9/11, wars, natural disasters, etc).  Many struggle to see where faith and social justice can intersect, if at all.  This discussion intends to create dialogue around the idea of where faith and social justice might meet and can intersect.
