Linking Our Struggles (Situations of Substance series)

Situations of Substance series
This series focuses on on-going societal “situations”—complex and troubling conditions we want to change.  Situations are not as simple as right and wrong; they are cultural and systemic, requiring of us multi-dimensional solutions of involvement and creativity as responsible citizens and people of faith.  The series is coordinated by Miriam Brown, OP.

“Today we want to send a message—that we will not be divided along lines of race or immigration status, public employee versus private employee, union versus non-union.”

With her passion and commitment, immigration activist Christine Newman-Ortiz will link social justice issues and move us to respond to the crisis of unemployment and low wages, and access to quality education and health care—not as a privilege but as a fundamental human right. We must stand together to uphold and deliver our country’s pledge, “justice for all.”
