Responding to the needs of our times, “Exploring Global Issues for a World in Crisis” is a collaborative effort between Global Ministries University and the People’s Catholic Seminary. The interactive course offers an overview of contemporary social justice issues including the prophetic call to do justice, and Catholic social justice teachings; develops pastoral strategies for addressing: reproductive justice as a human rights issue; changing the conversation between Pro-Choice and Pro-Life on reproductive rights; discrimination based on racism, sexism and homophobia; violence and peace-making; environmental justice and economic exploitation.
