Conference: Harvest of Justice-Moral Measure of the Economy

June 6, 2009 @ 12:00 pm - 7:00 pm

The theme of this third Harvest of Justice conference is based on a book co-authored by Chuck Collins and Mary Wright, who will serve as our keynote speakers. It will be a day of prayer, connection to the gospel values regarding justice and economics, learning, and inspiration to help shape a more just economy. Participants can take an interactive role in the keynote presentations via questions and focused discussions with other conference attendees. Each person can also attend two lively, fast-paced breakout sessions on various topics related to justice and economics.

Our news is full of the current economic crisis that is impacting our nation and our world. Do you feel out of control in understanding these complex issues? Are you confused about what ordinary citizens can do to help shape the future direction of our economy? Chuck Collins and Mary Wright explain these complex issues in ways that make sense to all of us, especially those who are not economists. More importantly, they view everything through the lens of Catholic social teaching, and help us to see the moral dimension that is required of our economy. Coupled with this is our responsibility, as people of faith, to become actively involved in working for a more just economy.
