Jesuit conference on migration and faith
February 16th, 2011
America’s contentious immigration debate could become less polarized if people of all faiths tried to find common ground through the lens of their religious values and symbols.
That perspective – the subject of initiatives led by Fairfield University’s Center for Faith and Public Life – will be explored at an event Feb. 24, 6-8 p.m., at the University of San Francisco titled, “Illegal Migration: Faith-Based Social Principles and Secular Policy.” Keynote speaker is the center’s director and professor of sociology, Jesuit Father Richard Ryscavage, an expert on immigration and refugees. The discussion and a reception will be held at USF’s Fromm Hall, Maraschi Room, 2130 Fulton St. in San Francisco, and is hosted by former U.S Attorney and Fairfield alumnus Joseph P. Russoniello and the Fairfield Alumni Association. Due to limited space, please register at www.fairfield.edu/sfimmigration or call (203) 254-4280.
