Social Justice Series Update

What is justice? What does justice look like in the real world?

We are halfway through our Social and Criminal Justice lecture series with philosopher and professor, David Smith. For the next four lectures, we will be looking at theories of punishment, relevant constitutional amendments, wrongful convictions, the death penalty debate, the war on drugs, police ethics, and the relationship between social and criminal justice.

After earning an M.A. in philosophy of religion and serving as an urban law enforcement officer, Dr. David E. Smith received a second M.A. and Ph.D. in religious studies from Temple University in Philadelphia, PA. David teaches for the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of Washington, is a speaker for Humanities Washington, and offers courses in religion and philosophy at many different venues through Beliefs and Ethics Seminars. He has published in these areas as well. His mission is to empower people to think for themselves about things that matter.

All lectures will be held from 4-5PM through the Zoom webinar platform.
