01/02/06

Joseph Wronka, professor of social work at Springfield College in Massachusettes and principal investigator of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights Project at Brandeis University is discussing basic economic rights on Wednesday, Jan. 11, 7:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m., at the Schiff Family Conference Center. This topic comes as part of the 2005-2006 Vision of Hope speakers series.


The series is based on the theme, “Five Pillars of a New World Building,” explored in a video by Benjamin J. Urmston, S.J., director of peace and justice programs. All lectures in this series are free and open to the public and each presentation begins with a showing of a short video, “A Vision of Hope,” which discusses five themes: a global ethic, human rights, non-violence, economic democracy and democratic world order.

Each speaker addresses three thematic questions: Is it necessary? Is it possible? What is the way forward? The program includes a response from Urmston and concludes with an audience question and answer session.
