Thea Bowman Justice Series: Stories for and with others
Join the Office of Service & Justice on Zoom
The JHS Office of Service & Justice is pleased to announce the “Thea Bowman Justice Series: Stories For and With Others.” Our first justice education evening is on Wednesday, April 28th from 6:00-7:30pm (via Zoom) and will explore the theme: “Journeys to Restorative Justice.”
The format will be as follows:
- Encounter – stories from those who are directly impacted by this issue of injustice.
- Educate – speakers who will provide context and data for a more rounded understanding of the issue.
- Engage – speakers who are working to advocate for change in this area, and provide avenues for our students to get involved.
Sr. Thea Bowman (of the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration) spent her life’s work as a professor, a writer and a gospel singer. Her life was one full of gospel joy, enduring faith and persevering prayer even in the midst of racial prejudice, cultural insensitivity and debilitating illness. We thought it fitting to honor her work with our justice series, and if you are interested in learning more about Sr. Thea Bowman, please visit this wonderful tribute page:
