Fairfield University and Georgetown University, on behalf of the Jesuit Universities Humanitarian Network (JUHAN), invite Jesuit Universities to join in a day of humanitarian action on November 20th, Universal Children’s Day.
Fairfield University will present a JUHAN-sponsored panel, “The Middle East: Past, Present and Personal,” on November 20th to offer a better understanding of the situation in the Middle East beyond the headlines, enabling more educated dialogues and opinions. Additionally, the university has designated November as “JUHAN Humanitarian Action Month,” with a full array of activities, including: a trip to the United Nations, a Habitat for Humanity Build Day, a 4 Liter Challenge event, a Non-Profit Career Panel, and a Save the Children Run.
For Humanitarian Action Day, Georgetown University’s Program on Justice & Peace and JUHAN will host Dr. Michael Wessels, author of “A World Turned Upside Down,” for a lecture and reception. Dr. Wessells will speak on strengthening protection for vulnerable populations through education and psychosocial approaches.
For inclusion of events on the JUHAN website, please contact Julie Mughal, Fairfield University’s JUHAN director and assistant director, Center for Faith and Public Life, Jmughal@fairfield.edu.
