Hammer Forum

Social Justice in Church and State

  • to This is a past program

Sister Simone Campbell, the director of Network, a Catholic social justice lobby, led the Nuns-on-the-Bus tour in the last election. She is the author of A Nun on the Bus: How All of Us Can Create Hope, Change, and Community. Campbell joins us to discuss the resurgence of social justice issues in the Catholic Church since the arrival of Pope Francis and the inclusion of social justice issues, such as income inequality, in this year’s election.
