Social Justice Forum set for Feb. 19

Holy Names University will host the sixth annual Social Justice Forum from 1 to 5 p.m. Feb. 19 on its Oakland campus.

Sister Linda Haydock, a member of the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary and director of the Intercommunity Peace & Justice Center in Seattle, will be the keynote speaker at the forum. She is expected to speak on her work and perspective for economic justice and ecological sustainability.

Topics of previous forums have included immigration and food justice.

The Intercommunity Peace & Justice Center, which acts for justice, is sponsored by several religious communities and collaborates with Catholic, ecumenical, interfaith and other organizations in carrying out this mission.

The forum is sponsored by HNU's Center for Social Justice and Civic Engagement.

The forum is open to the general public. There is no admission for high school and HNU students. The fee is $10 for students at other universities; $35 for general admission.

Reserve tickets at bit.ly/1Oprgyw. Holy Names University is at 3500 Mountain Blvd., Oakland.
