Exploring Intersections: Catholic Sisters on Racism, Migration and Climate

Join Catholic Sisters for a yearlong, monthly conversation series “Exploring Intersections: Catholic Sisters on Racism, Migration and Climate.” Each month, panelists will explore a social issue and how it intersects with racism, migration and climate in a thought-provoking and engaging conversation.

August will be focused on Eliminating Gun Violence.

DATE |  Wednesday, August 11 |  3-4pm central

Gun violence has become a global human rights and public health issue that threatens the basic right to life. Gun violence disproportionately impacts communities of color, women and other marginalized groups in society. Armed violence and climate change are two of the root causes forcing millions of migrants and refugees to flee their homes and communities.

What are some reasonable measures that can be taken that would have immediate security implications? How do we address the underlying contributors to gun violence? How do we create a culture of gun safety?

Join us for our next episode of “Exploring Intersections: Catholic Sisters on Racism, Migration and Climate”—airing live on August 11 at 3 p.m. Central as panelists Sister Donna Liette, CPPS, a grief counselor; Leslie Washington, a gun violence survivor and advocate; and Kim Westerman, a gun violence prevention activist join host Charish Badzinski to explore this topic in depth. Registration is free and open to the public.
