What would Jesus' justice look like, and what does the gospel teach us about how to heal our broken world? What do you know about systems of injustice, and how are we called to participate in God's restorative justice? Find out during Northwestern's sixth Day of Learning in Community (DLC).
The featured speaker for the DLC is Rev. Alexia Salvatierra, an ordained Lutheran pastor in Los Angeles and the author of Faith-Rooted Organizing: Mobilizing the Church in Service to the World. Salvatierra has led social justice efforts among immigrants and low-wage workers, homeless people, gang members, and poor women in the Philippines. She has received numerous awards, including the Amos Award from Sojourners.
