Catholic Sisters from 24 congregations – including the Society of the Sacred Heart, United States – Canada (USC) Province – in four states this March will launch a yearlong, live-streamed conversation series on the leading social justice issues of our time.
The “Exploring Intersections: Catholic Sisters on Racism, Migration and Climate” series will explore a different social issue each month and explore how it intersects with racism, migration and climate in a thought-provoking and engaging conversation. Three panelists from different walks of life, including Catholic Sisters, will bring unique perspectives to each session.
The first conversation will premiere during Catholic Sisters week on March 10, 2021 at 3 p.m. CST.
“This series is intended to provide a forum for constructive conversation on the big issues of our day, and how each intersects with the major themes of racism, migration and climate,” says Flavia Bader, director of communications and public relations for the USC Province, who is one of many communicators for women religious working on the series. “We’re looking forward to lively, nuanced conversations among our panelists and to hearing what our audience members have to say on these topics.”
Upcoming topics will include gender equity, care of creation, migration, racial justice, ending human trafficking, eliminating gun violence, economic justice, food security, restorative justice, affordable housing, educational justice and equitable access to health care.

The conversations will be held as a free, public Zoom webinar and streamed on YouTube at 3 p.m. the second Wednesday of each month, beginning March 10. For those who want to watch or listen on their own schedule, the recordings of the episodes will be available on YouTube and as a podcast.
