Sr. Moore remains committed to racial, social justice

Sister Barbara Moore, CSJ, center, shares thoughts about racial and social justice with some students, faculty and administrators May 10 at St. Ambrose University in Davenport. Seated next to her are Daniella Harris, a grad student, and Kemper Rusteberg, a junior. Sr. Moore was the commencement speaker at the university’s spring commencement May 11.

Several St. Ambrose University students, faculty and administrators were having lunch with Sister Barbara Moore, CSJ, the university’s spring commencement speaker, when the topic of “Race Matters” came up. That was the theme of a yearlong focus on racial justice as part of St. Ambrose’s commitment to social justice. Events included free lectures, films, concerts, artistic performances and exhibits.
