Social Justice Week Underway at Taylor

Published: May 01, 2018

Taylor alumna and Board Chairperson Dr. Paige Comstock Cunningham served as the opening speaker for this week’s Social Justice Week at Taylor University.

Cunningham, the executive director for the Center for Bioethics and Human Dignity in Deerfield, Illinois, was featured during Monday’s chapel address at 10:00 am. She is the author of a number of books and articles and serves as affiliate professor at Trinity Law School and Trinity Graduate School, also in Deerfield.

Additional events scheduled for this week include a panel discussion from 7:00-8:00 pm in Ayres Courtroom, Wednesday, May 2; a clothing swap from 6:00-7:30 pm, Thursday, May 3, in Alspaugh East and West; and a volunteer day at Victory Acres, Friday, May 4, from 3:00-5:00 pm.

“The purpose of Social Justice Week is the same as our departmental purpose in Taylor World Outreach; to educate, equip, and engage others to live and serve like Jesus,” said Cynthia L. Moberly, Social Justice Graduate Assistant at Taylor University. “We hope that students take away from this week a better understanding of Biblical Social Justice – to seek justice and correct oppression as we are called to in Isaiah, to advocate on behalf of those who cannot do so for themselves as Proverbs tells us, and to seek the harmony of both rejoicing and weeping with our neighbors as mentioned in Romans.”
