Confronting Intolerance

Examining Systemic Injustice Through the Lens of Advocacy

Sponsored by Religious Studies, Center for Spirituality, Hickey Center for Interfaith Studies and Dialogue, and the Office for Diversity and Inclusion

An invitation to dialogue.

Last semester, Nazareth Students worked diligently to address the global reality of genocide and mass violence through the understanding of personal and systemic injustices in local contexts.


The event will focus on the students' engagement around the topic of mass violence and genocide with four community representatives, Mr. Henry Silberstern, Holocaust survivor; Dr. David Anderson, Visiting Scholar and African American activist; Ms. Lauren Jimmerson, Seneca of the Haudenosaunee People; and Joe, an Iraqi refugee relocated for his translation work.

Students will present a brief recap of last semester's work including the class website (witnessingforpeace.weebly.com). Afterwards, the Nazareth community is invited to participate in discussions with student leaders and community representatives.

A light meal will be provided. Please RSVP by February 25th.
