On Tuesday, March 9th join the Parliament's Global Ethic Task Force for a special program co-sponsored by the Winter Sounding at the Center of Religious Wisdom & World Affairs. This conversation will explore The Connection Between Poverty and Structural Violence, with keynote speaker Arun Gandhi.
Arun Manilal Gandhi is an Indian-American socio-political activist, and the fifth grandson of Mahatma Gandhi. Arun followed in the footsteps of his grandfather as an activist. In 2017 he published "The Gift of Anger: And Other Lessons from My Grandfather Mahatma Gandhi" (New York: Gallery Books/Jeter Publishing 2017). He is known internationally as the Peace Farmer through his demonstrated commitments to non-violent peacemaking.
The Center is committed to facilitating public conversations that positively impact three publics: Student leaders, religious influencers in their respective communities, and greater society with an ear to enhanced public discourse. A Sounding is a full-day event where participants reflect on one central question.
The program will be moderated by Parliament Trustee and Co-Chair of the Global Ethic Task Force, Dianne Dillon-Ridgley, and will feature a special introduction on the Parliament's foundational document, Towards a Global Ethic.
