Join us for Grace Cathedral’s flagship conversation program online with an ethicist, author, and award-winning teacher Grace Kao.

The COVID-19 public health emergency is also causing a human rights crisis, with its economic and social effects disproportionately impacting the poor, the elderly, and people of color. Even if “we are all in this together,” some enjoy more safety, shelter, resources, and care. How does moral thinking about the common good challenge these disparities? Do conceptions of the common good differ across national and cultural contexts? How can religious communities and theological ethics teach us to address them?

Join us to hear from Grace Kao, Professor of Ethics at the Claremont School of Theology and co-director of the Center for Sexuality, Gender and Religion, in conversation with Dean Malcolm Clemens Young about individualism and inequality, solidarity and the common good, and discerning a sense of the global common good in a time of crisis.
