Description

The Program for Research on Religion & Urban Civil Society presents:

Faith in Democracy?

A View from the Global South

Friday, Sept 21, 12 noon

Leadership Hall


Suspicion of democracy has grown in recent years among many commentators in North America and Western Europe, who observe a global uptick in nationalism and populist movements with increasing alarm. For some civil activists in other parts of the world, however, democracy remains the much-prized solution, not the problem. Please join the Program for Research on Religion and Urban Civil Society (PRRUCS) on Friday, September 21st, as we welcome a world leader, Rev. Moss Ntlha, who was one of the leading evangelical voices against Apartheid and continues to spearhead faith activism for the renewal of democracy and public accountability in South Africa. Rev. Ntlha is the General Secretary of The Evangelical Alliance of South Africa (TEASA), which involves him in public policy advocacy both nationally and internationally. He also chairs the South African Christian leadership initiative, working ecumenically to sustain a prophetic witness that enables the voices of the poor to be heard in the corridors of power. Co-sponsored by The Collegium Institute for Catholic Thought & Culture.


Due to limited seating, this special event is open only to Penn students and faculty. Seating is limited for the special luncheon in Leadership Hall.

RSVP is open until Wednesday, 9/20, or until registration is full.
