The Pledge of Allegiance commits Americans who recite these famous words to a nation offering justice for all. Most Americans recited the Pledge in school, and many continue to repeat it at various civic occasions.
But, to what extent do Americans – and America – live up to this pledge? Is justice available to everyone in equitable portions? And do we all understand justice in the same way?
The 2019-20 season of the Alworth Peace & Justice Lecture Series will help us all think about these questions through a series of programs featuring distinguished and thoughtful speakers.
All lectures are free and open to the public.
They are held in Mitchell Auditorium at 7:30 p.m.
