Community Restoration and Civil Society (Denver)

Presenters: Anthony B. Bradley, Ph.D, James Whitford, John D. Wilsey, Ph.D.
January 29 @ 8:30 am - 2:00 pm MST
The Ramble Hotel, 1280 25th St
Denver, CO 80205 United States

Many of our nation’s cities possess the same challenges: racial division, chronic homelessness, and social isolation. For most of our history, churches, businesses, clubs, and voluntary organizations have been the most effective in addressing our nation’s major ills. This still holds true today.

Join us for a time where we will examine thoughtful and innovative models meant to heal our fraught racial history, help those experiencing homelessness, and patch our fraying social fabric. It is through the institutions of civil society that we will see our communities truly restored.

Registration Deadline: January 20, 2020 - Hurry, seats are limited!

From Thinking to Thriving: Economics, Work, and Human Flourishing (Los Angeles)

Presenters: Anne Rathbone Bradley, Ph.D., Anthony B. Bradley, Ph.D., J. Daryl Charles, Ph.D.
February 29 @ 8:30 am - 3:30 pm PST
Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach, 21500 Pacific Coast Highway
Huntington Beach, CA 92648 United States

We were made to live in freedom and flourish. But what ideas form the foundation for healthy, thriving communities? How does our understanding of the human person, economics, and work help us build a culture for flourishing?

Join us for a day of discussion where we’ll explore:
• The human person made in the Image of God
• The economic realities of our world
• The value and dignity of our daily work and labor

We will also screen our award-winning film, Poverty, Inc., and address the ways we can successfully engage communities living in material poverty.

Who Should Attend:

- Faith-Based Leaders
- Nonprofit Leaders
- You! All are welcome!
