Imperfect Union
Has America Lost its Moral Center?

Wednesday, November 29, 2017 | 6 p.m.
Pope Auditorium | Lowenstein Center | Lincoln Center Campus
Fordham University | New York City

This event is sponsored by the Fordham Center on Religion and Culture.

We find ourselves living in a world where foundational principles such as equality, tolerance, and free speech seem increasingly fragile—a world where the very concept of truth appears to be under siege. Is this turmoil symptomatic of a deeper, looming moral crisis in America?

Can our institutions and values save us from this crisis? Will they even prevail? How do we find hope and a way forward?
