(Sydney) Spirituality and Social Justice: Citizens and Change
August 6, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm
We’re delighted to invite you to join us at our upcoming event in collaboration with Eremos called Spirituality and Social Justice: Citizens and Change at Rosebank College in Five Dock.
On Sunday 6 August, speakers from four different spiritual traditions will share how their faith impacts their involvement in social change. Their stories will stimulate our own exploration of how faith inspires social action. The panel presentations will set the foundation for a larger conversation about the role that faith and spirituality plays in people’s commitment to social action.
Donna Mulhearn, Peace activist and Christian Meditation leader, author of Ordinary Courage: My journey to Baghdad as a Human Shield.
Angela Rodgers, Humanitarian and philanthropic Muslim activist, student studying the various sciences of Islam.
Sujata Allan, Doctors for the Environment Australia and ‘engaged Buddhism’ movement with the Sydney Buddhist Centre.
Donna Jacobs Sife, Storyteller, educator, Peace activist, co-founded Jewish Voices for Peace and Justice and leads workshops with Palestinian experts in conflict resolution and peace studies.
Facilitated by Francis Voon, Faith & Multicultural Outreach Coordinator, Equality Campaign. Facilitator, Pace e Bene Australia's Nonviolence Interfaith Leadership Program.
The afternoon includes time for questions and discussion inviting all participants to consider their experience of faith and activism. To become more active citizens includes recognising our ability to not just be receivers of social change, but shapers of the world we inhabit.
Afternoon tea and refreshments will be served.
Please join us for this stimulating and challenging event.
