be:Justice presents, "Conscientious Consumerism"

 

ccThe Malone University student organization, be:Justice, will present the next in its series of social issue discussions Monday, December 6 at 7 p.m. in the Brehme Conference Center, located on the Canton campus.  The program is free and open to the public.
The interactive seminar, "Conscientious Consumerism: ’Tis the Season to be Mindful" will feature Tanya Hershberger of the Malone University campus ministries staff discussing how to live a more conscientious lifestyle, mindful of where and how the things we buy are made and how they impact our fragile earth. She will guide participants through an interactive evening at various tables that will explore the array of issues surrounding a globalized market from labor rights, sweatshops, environmental degradation, simplicity versus “stuffism,” and much more. Specific attention will be paid to the fact that it is the holiday buying season in our country.  What better time than now to begin implementing changes in our buying habits to benefit others and the world?
“be:Justice” is a student organization that focuses on social justice by hosting monthly educational seminars.  For more information, contact Jacci Stuckey Welling, Ph.D., associate professor of history and faculty advisor for the organization, at 330-471-8180 or jwelling@malone.edu .
