Nonviolence: Intersectional Praxis for Covid-19 and Systemic Racism
The Institute of Judaeo-Christian Studies
Monsignor John M. Oesterreicher Memorial Lecture
Eli S. McCarthy, Ph.D. presented, “Nonviolence: Intersectional Praxis for Covid-19 and Systemic Racism,” on Zoom as the 27th Annual Monsignor John M. Oesterreicher Memorial Lecture on October 22, 2020.
Nonviolent peacemaking is distinct from the pacifism of some good people of past generations because it takes initiatives to promote the justice that should lead to a sustainable peace. Dr. McCarthy has been involved in promoting the nonviolent practices of the Pax Christi organization on several Catholic University campuses, including Seton Hall in 2019. This lecture sets his work in the context of urgent issues of this time.
