There will be a very important panel discussion at MLC on Thursday, April 26 at 6 pm - important for its subject and the groups bringing attention to the subject of spiritual violence:
Spiritual violence is the act of using religious grounds to persecute a particular person or group of people. This can occur without physical violence.
Rev. Renee Dubose, Our Hope MCC
Joel Marcovitch, director of Hillel at UGA
Carolyn Medine, associate professor of religion
Rev. Alison Eskildsen, Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Athens
Sponsors: GLOBES, Office of Institutional Diversity, Black Faculty & Staff Organization and I.M.P.A.C.T. (Sustained Dialogue)
The Franklin College and the University are glad to provide a forum to bring these groups together. Our campus must be a catalyst for discussion and the free exchange of ideas that provide comfort and understanding on issues of crucial importance to the entire community. Learn more about these groups and the role they play in educating the public about the struggles many of our fellow citizens face simply because of race, creed or sexual orientation. Learning, understanding and empathy make us all better people, and better able to create the society we want.
