Third Tuesdays Social Justice Forum

This forum is a monthly series exploring social justice issues, meeting at 7 PM in the Conference Room on the third Tuesday of every month.

Join us April 16 at 7 PM to hear from through video from John Dear regarding his new book “They Shall Inherit the Earth: Peace & Nonviolence in a Time of Climate Change.”  Come and  explore Dear’s perspective on climate change as the natural consequence of a global systemic violence, intimately connected with racism, sexism, classism, militarism, and war. We’ll give special attention to how we can undertake constructive programs for a new eco-sustainable culture of nonviolence.

John Dear was born in Elizabeth City, North Carolina where his father was the publisher of the local newspaper. He graduated from Duke University.  John is the Outreach Coordinator for Campaign Nonviolence, a program of Pace e Bene.  He is an internationally known voice for peace and nonviolence.
