Week of Peace Hope Justice
January 16 to 20, 2017
Pepperdine Volunteer Center and Intercultural Affairs present the Week of Peace Hope Justice. During this week, our community will engage the topics of social justice and equity. Students are invited to learn and serve through lectures, movies, performances, volunteer opportunities, and worship that promote community, equity, and social change, all leading toward the reconciliation of God's people and creation.
The events of the week are especially intended to highlight the importance of stories in how we view and approach issues of social justice and equity in the world. What are the dominant narratives in society? Who are the storytellers? Whose stories are not being told and why? Come and join us as we imagine a world where we can tell stories that humanize and give dignity to people.
