What does it mean to be just? What does true justice look like? Why does justice matter? How can justice transform others around us? How do we treat others justly? How can we each choose to treat everyone justly, regardless of how they treat us, or their background or their beliefs?
This year at the Mauthe Center, we are diving into what it means to choose justice. Featuring awesome spiritual directors, prominent speakers, movement leaders, and more, join us as we learn how others are choosing to show justice in their own lives and how we are called to do the same.
