‘Questions about power, justice, and the role of religion in social protest remain as vital as ever. This conference provides a timely occasion to address important practical and methodological issues in the field of social ethics. By bringing theorists and practitioners together, we hope to spark fresh conversations about the ways that the actions and relationships of ordinary citizens relate to various social structures, practices, and expressions of power.’

Speakers included:

Ernesto Cortés, Jr., the Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF) co-director and executive director of the West / Southwest IAF regional network; and

Luke Bretherton, Professor of Theological Ethics at Duke Divinity School and author of Resurrecting Democracy. Faith, Citizenship, and the Politics of a Common Life (2014).
