4. Want a great experience learning and seeking justice in Latin America? Check out this conference, in June, in Honduras: “Justice: Theory Meets Practice.”,
AJS is looking for 15 – 20 participants from a variety of national
backgrounds (from both the Global North and South) and disciplines
(academics, pastors, NGO personnel, government officials…). The goal is
for everyone to deepen and broaden their grasp of the “what” and “how” of
justice, through exchanges between the participants, lectures from Dr.
Wolterstorff, and visits with ASJ and TH projects, diplomats, Honduran
Government officials, etc. After the seminar, each participant will be
asked to contribute a concrete product appropriate to their field–e.g., a
book chapter, sermon series, new NGO project, etc.
The seminar is from June 18 – 29 in Tegucigalpa. Maximum cost per
participant, including airfare, is $1,500, and financial aid is available.
