Weaving and Working: Feminist Voices in Spirituality and Justice

This learning opportunity will focus on feminist voices in spirituality in conversation with social justice. We will highlight Canadian voices of women writers, religious thinkers, workers, and activists, through a variety of ecological and social lenses. How are women weaving together new understandings of what it means to be in “beloved community,” in light of the many gender-related injustices in our society? How do voice and action embody a prophetic call to justice? We will explore these questions and more through video lectures, articles, and voices found in poetry, prose, and action. (1.2 CEU)
