The 18th Contemporary Contexts
 of Compassion Presentation
November 13, 2021  9:30~noon

White Privilege and the Common Good

– The other pandemic is racism –

Maria Teresa Davila invites us to explore the concept of “White Privilege” and its intersection with the Common Good

María Teresa (MT) Dávila is an associate professor of practice at Merrimack College in North Andover, Massachusetts. Her publications and courses focus on immigration, racism and racial justice, class and inequality, Catholic social teaching and the ethics of the use of force.

This timely presentation comes at a moment in our national life that continues to show us that the conversation is long overdue.
