Dr. Everett Worthington: “Forgiveness as a Process that Facilitates Justice and Peace”
March 8 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
“Peace Initiative” keynote speaker Dr. Everett Worthington (Virginia Commonwealth University) will discuss how forgiveness can serve to facilitate justice and peace. Forgiveness is something that we do first for ourselves, and it does not mean that a transgressor is relieved from being accountable for her/his actions. Specifically, one can forgive, but still expect the transgressor to experience a consequence based on her or his actions. Dr. Worthington will explore these issues and explain how forgiveness and justice can work together for the benefit of all. Reception to follow. Sponsored by the Department of Psychology and the Sustainability Literacy Institute.
5:30 p.m. on March 8th, Stern Center Ballroom.
