On Friday, Sept. 20 at 7:00pm, Rev. Phillip Lawson will speak in the Alumni Campus Center Ballroom titled Nonviolence in the Cause of Justice Today
. Lawson will reflect on the connections between civil rights struggles of the past and the continuing need to transform our culture of violence into one of nonviolence.
