Imperfect Union:
Has America Lost its Moral Center?
Wednesday November 29, 2017 | 6 p.m.
Pope Auditorium | Fordham University

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?
