The Laura C. Harris Series welcomes Sister Simone Campbell presenting “A Nun on a Bus,” a discussion of social activism to bridge the political and economic divide in America.
Campbell, a religious leader, attorney, and poet with extensive experience in public policy and advocacy for systemic change, has served as Executive Director of NETWORK since 2004. In Washington, she lobbies on issues of peace-building, immigration reform, healthcare, and economic justice. Around the country, she is a noted speaker and educator on these public policy issues. She has led four cross-country “Nuns on the Bus” trips, focused on economic justice, comprehensive immigration reform, voter turnout, and (most recently) bridging political and economic divides.
Denison University’s Women’s and Gender Studies Program, in coordination with academic department and student organization partners, presents the 2016-2017 Laura C. Harris Series. The year-long symposium will host speakers and artists to discuss the theme “Making Just Democracies?” which seeks an emergence of dialogue and action that work toward democratizing subjects and objects – natures and cultures – into a collective embrace.
