Carol Stewart welcomes Sister Alice Gerdeman, a Sister of Divine Providence and coordinator for Cincinnati's Intercommunity Justice and Peace Center. Sister Alice, teacher, advocate and writer, share stories of her upbringing as a teacher and principal, and what called her to work for social justice.
Listeners will hear how one neighborhood saved a community center, which became the home for the IJPC, and will be inspired by Sister Alice's work with immigration reform. The center brings together advocates to support immigrants, as well as supporting the Dream Act, created for children of undocumented workers to remain in the U.S. While recognizing that evil does exist,
Sister Alice works tirelessly to eliminate the death penalty in Ohio, so the healing of victims, prisoners and families can begin. Visit the IJPC website for more information on volunteering and programs.
