An evening with America Magazine managing editor Kerry Weber
How do you put service and justice into practice?
Join Magis and Jesuit alumni for an evening of inspiration, conversation, and connection on how to live out Jesuit values of service and justice in everyday life.
The evening will include:
- Speaker Kerry Weber, author and managing editor of America Magazine, who will share her experience of incorporating service into her everyday life, drawing upon her new book Mercy in the City.
- An opportunity to reflect on ways you are already serving, and identify an area of impact you would like to explore moving forward.
- A community of alumni with whom to dialogue and share experiences, ideas, and resources.
- A mini-volunteer fair with some local organizations looking for your volunteerism and leadership.
Justice Conversation is open to all Jesuit alumni, and is a follow-up event for those who attended Magis' Justice Education Forum in December 2013. Event is free; space is limited.
