MAYDAY! Peace Conference Christ Chapel

This year's Conference titled "Divestment & Reinvestment: Making Money Count, ewill have a morning session from 10 a.m. " 11:30 a.m. featuring Dr. Kathleen Dean Moore and Dr. Ove Jakobsen. The afternoon will be a teach-in style presentation from 1- 3 p.m. in Alumni Hall.

The 2016 MAYDAY! Peace Conference will consider whether or not divestment is an effective tool for building peace. Through a diversity of speakers with a wide range of perspectives, we will examine past divestment initiatives and current strategies, investigate the impact of power structures, and explore the complexity and commitments surrounding the ongoing debates. This conference will probe the morality and mechanics of divestment in order to inspire effective action for building peace.

The class schedule will be modified to allow for all students and faculty to attend the morning session. Classes that normally meet at or after 10:30 a.m. will start (and end) one hour later. Thus, classes that begin at 10:30 a.m. will start at 11:30 a.m. and so on.

The event will also be livestreamed. For more information, visit https://gustavus.edu/events/mayday/
