Divinely Ordained Whistle-Blowers

May 25, 2022

6-8pm CT / 7-9pm ET

Parkes Hall Room 122 (near Alice Millar)

A Discussion on Accountability, Justice, and Grace

This discussion will explore the role faith can play in holding society/people accountable and bringing about justice, while also presenting a roadmap for grace. Our speakers will discuss prophets from the Abrahamic religions who were whistle-blowers of their times. Using this as a basis, this event is looking to facilitate discussions that are engaging for any belief background.
