Description

Free of charge; all are welcome

6:30pm Reception
7:00pm Presentation

Did you know there are faith-based NGOs at the United Nations…and that they include one run by the Vincentians, the Catholic religious order named for St. Vincent de Paul? In this talk, Rev. Guillermo Campuzano, the Vincentians' rep at the UN and head of its NGO, discusses the connection between charity, political advocacy, and systemic change—what he calls the “Vincentian triad of justice.” In the spirit of St. Vincent de Paul, the NGO tackles the question “what must be done?” at the global level to uphold the dignity of the poorest and most vulnerable among us.

Speaker: Rev. Guillermo Campuzano, CM, leads the Vincentian International Network for Justice, Peace, and Integrity of Creation at the United Nations and also chairs its NGO Working Group to End Homelessness. A DePaul University alum, he also served the university in numerous ministry roles as well as an adjunct professor from 2007 to 2015.

This talk is the opening lecture for the series, "Poverty—Vincentian Responses around the World," hosted by DePaul University's Center for World Catholicism & Intercultural Theology and the Rev. Dennis H. Holtschneider, CM, Chair in Vincentian Studies.
