OPTION FOR THE POOR: Engaging the Social Tradition

2019 Catholic Social Tradition Conference 

March 21–23, 2019 | University of Notre Dame

This biennial conference sponsored by the Center for Social Concerns at the University of Notre Dame will explore how Catholic social tradition can engage academics and practitioners in the challenges of the most marginalized and vulnerable people in societies today, as well as how the development and impact of the Latin American theological concept of Option for the Poor has been globally embraced to build a more just and humane world. If the moral test of a society is how it treats vulnerable people, the signs of the times suggest there is significant room for improvement in communities around the world. By assembling experts in Catholic social ethics, the conference seeks to identify social issues with practical responses adequate to address the difficulty of resulting injustices.

Catholic Mobilizing Network will be an organizational co-sponsor of this event.
