Co-Sponsored by the Center for Catholic Studies and the Bennett Center for Judaic Studies, Ann Millin, PhD, will deliver the 15th Annual Lecture in Jewish/Christian Engagement, “Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing: Jewish and Christian Women as Allies in Anti-Racism.”

In the face of today’s economic, social, and political challenges, Jewish and Christian women of color are leading the charge against the discrimination, marginalization, and exclusion that has marked their histories. “Each of their projects represents a small victory of diversity, access, and equality,” said Ann Millin, PhD, “and each woman and her work represents a reason in these troubled times to lift our voices and rejoice.”
