How do you become a member of Partnership for Global Justice?
Partnership for Global Justice:
As we come to understand our commitment to justice, we realize that there is an economic component to each issue. Therefore we need to understand economic principles as we live out our Christian vocation in the modern world and as we enter into dialogue with corporations and government leaders as well as with those who are unemployed or homeless.
Educators, Parents, Parish Leaders, Global Citizens, Concerned Christians, Voters, Investors, Consumers, Justice Promoters, Religious Leaders and NGO’s all need a better understanding of economics as it interconnects with basic Christian principles.
This program will give participants a firmer grasp of economic principles as they intersect with issues of Human Rights, Development and Sustainability. Having an overview of economic concerns filtered by a justice viewpoint sharpens our understanding and perception of the world issues that we care about and engage in as advocates and as citizens.
Speakers include Marci McCarthy, PhD, former chief economist for CNBC, Amata Miller, IHM, PhD, who specializes in economics of development and the problems of the economically disadvantaged and Ana Martinez de Luco who lives and works with the homeless population in New York.
