Friday | September 5 | 4–5 PM

Labor Café

Geddes Hall | Room B034

Worried about wealth distribution? Wondering about workers’ rights? Interested in interrogating inequality? Curious about Catholic Social Teaching?

Then join us for the Labor Café, a biweekly venue for students, faculty, and staff to gather for casual yet critical conversation on contemporary issues related to work, equity, and social justice. The Labor Café is sponsored by the Higgins Labor Studies Program of the Center for Social Concerns. We’ll provide the caffeine and treats to boost your energy; you bring the questions and concerns to inform the discussions.

The first meeting of the Labor Café is Friday, September 5, at 4 pm, in B034 Geddes Hall. All ND community members and opinions are welcome.

At this first gathering we’ll decide as a group what topics to discuss at upcoming sessions, so if you’re interested but cannot make it, please email Dan Graff, director of the Higgins Labor Studies Program.

The lay Catholic Community of Sant’Egidio is known worldwide for its “Track Two” diplomacy. Sant’Egidio mediated the 1992 peace agreement that ended the Mozambique conflict and has played similar roles in Algeria, Burundi, Congo and elsewhere. Sant’Egidio is also a leader in inter-religious peacebuilding, hosting annual gatherings of religious leaders since 1987. Founded in Rome in 1968, the Community now has 50,000 members in 70 countries.
