POLI 1225 Capstone: Lives of Faith and Solidarity (Spring: 3 )


Course Description

What does it mean to live in solidarity with the poor and marginalized? How has your education prepared you for this? We will explore solidarity as a commitment of faith and politics through analysis of faith-based movements linking the US and Latin America: Sanctuary Movement, Witness for Peace, and School of the Americas Watch. We will examine the meaning of faith and solidarity in our lives through previous and future service, advocacy, relationships, work, and spirituality.
