Written by Kristina Alvarado
March 24, 2015

Seattle University's Office of Campus Ministry invites the community to think critically about theology as it informs our response to tragic events like the death of Michael Brown. Join this powerful conversation featuring our very own adjunct professor at the School of Theology and Ministry, Dr. Cynthia Moe-Lobeda.

The panel will focus on two key questions:
1) How do/should recent events in Ferguson (and elsewhere) regarding issues of racial injustice and racialized police violence affect the way theology is done? and 2) How can/should theology inform our understanding of and response to Ferguson and other instances of racial injustice?
