11 a.m. – 12 p.m.
The murder of George Floyd and the ensuing protests calling for racial justice have reverberated throughout Minnesota, across the country, and around the world. How have these events disturbed and reoriented individuals’ and society’s understanding of racial justice? What does this reckoning mean for people who espouse a religious or spiritual worldview? How does this moment provide an opportunity to reaffirm, rearticulate, or revise how religious and spiritual traditions work toward racial justice? The Batalden Seminar in Applied Ethics will highlight a video series of practitioners from differing religious, spiritual, and secular perspectives in conversation on the issue of racial justice interspersed with a panel discussion with the video participants.
This event is sponsored by Paul ’63 and LaVonne (Olson) Batalden ’63 and Stephen ’67 and Sandra Batalden.
