Staying Informed: Engaged Citizenship and Armchair Activism – Zoom

Saturday, September 26
10:00 am - 11:30 am

As part if its Elections 2020 Series, the IHM Justice, Peace and Sustainability Office presents “Staying Informed: Engaged Citizenship and Armchair Activism,” with Peggy Thompson, PhD, IHM Associate. The presentation will take place via Zoom.

In a time of information overload and opinion often overtaking news, how can we assess the materials we encounter and make sure we are not simply reinforcing our own preconceptions? How can we become effective “armchair activists”—on behalf of candidates, causes and concerns during a pandemic, when many of us find it difficult (if not impossible) to go out in public?

This event is free, but advanced registration is required and space is limited. Contact the IHM Justice, Peace and Sustainability Office at jpso@ihmsisters.org or 734-240-9691 by Friday, Sept. 18, to register. The ZOOM link will be provided at registration.
